An easy solution to make large amounts of poached eggs ahead of time!
1 dozen eggs
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Coat each well of a muffin tin (standard or jumbo, I prefer jumbo) with butter. Add 1 tablespoon water to each one. Crack each egg and add 1 egg per muffin cup. Do not salt and pepper (it will wash away with the water!) . Bake for about 10 minutes, but watch them a few minutes before and after that in order to cook to desired doneness. Keep in mind the water on top will be discarded- sometimes it makes it look like uncooked egg white on top, when it’s really just water.
Follow steps above, only omit water and sprinkle each egg with salt and pepper before baking.
