Butter Poached Eggs

Ingredients
2 cups clarified butter
Two eggs

Directions
1. Heat clarified butter in small saucepan over medium low heat. While butter is heating, crack eggs into two individual ramekins. When butter is hot enough, slide eggs one at a time into butter. Do this slowly so the egg doesn’t spider out.

2. Remove pan from heat and let the eggs cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the yolk is slightly white on top for a runny yolk. Cook a couple of minutes longer for a more cooked yolk.

3. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from butter and plate. If you’re cooking more than two eggs, use this chance to reheat the butter and add eggs until desired amount is reached.
