How to Reheat Poached Eggs

It is not rocket science when it comes to reheating your poached eggs. The process can take under five minutes and when done properly, you should have poached eggs that are piping hot.

What You’ll Need:

  • Saucepan
  • Hot water


  1. Pour water in a saucepan (enough to cover the eggs) and bring the water to a boil or close to boiling.
  2. Turn down the heat until the water is simmering (small bubbles should be rising, but not intense bubbling as when it is boiling).
  3. Place the poached eggs in the saucepan and let the eggs sit for 45 seconds to a minute. (Please remember the longer it is in the water, the higher the chance the yolk will become cooked).
  4. Remove the egg, allow it to slightly cool, eat and enjoy.

As you can see, reheating a poached egg is not difficult. You do need to be aware that the egg yolk may cook if you keep it in the water too long.
