Cooking poached eggs in the Thermomix is simple with this easy method.
Cooking poached eggs in the Thermomix is straightforward but takes longer than the stovetop method. This recipe is for the TM6, as the mixing bowl is larger than the TM31.
I followed the recipe in the Basic Cookbook, adjusted the time slightly, and added less vinegar to the water. Vinegar is optional and helps keep the egg whites together. I used white wine vinegar, but plain white vinegar will do the trick.
Poached eggs go really well with Hollandaise sauce and will save you a whopping $20 at a cafe. I don't have a recipe, but this one from Mama Loves to Cook looks good.

Why spray the simmering basket with oil?
It's so the egg whites don't stick to the simmering basket. The eggs will still turn out the same if not sprayed but it just helps with washing up.
Turned out perfectly for me thank you. One of the eggs lost most of its white but I probably didn’t put enough vinegar in it.
I’m confused. Point 2. Says:
Crack the eggs into a separate mixing bowl and carefully place into the simmering basket.
Does this mean place mixing bowl into simmering basket, or place eggs without bowl into simmering basket?
The question above re oil makes me think you’re placing the eggs from the mixing bowl into the basket, but the instruction isn’t clear. Thanks for the recipe! Look forward to your answer 🙂
Hi Georgie, thank you for your message and sorry for the confusion. I've reworded the recipe, and hopefully, it now makes sense, but please let me know if not! Kind regards, Vicki.
These were perfect and so easy! Thanks for sharing
