My uncle would boil a pot of water, crack 2 eggs into a bowl, put the bowl edge gently into the water and let the eggs slide in. Cook them until done and then use a 5-6" diameter ladle with holes to gently scoop the eggs out and a little dab of the kitchen towel to get excess water off and then onto a plate. He had a restaurant in
Chicago. A customer would come in every day and order 2 poached eggs, sausage and rye bread toast with a side bowl of oatmeal.
