If your egg white thins out in the pan, try swirling the water before adding the next egg. The moving water will help hold the egg's shape. You can refrigerate poached eggs for up to 3 hours, on a parchment-lined plate. To serve, heat water in skillet according to instructions in step 1 (above); gently add eggs and cook just until heated through, 30 to 45 seconds. Remove eggs and blot as directed.
