potato hash with egg disaster

we were making this delicious dinner and jeremy asked me to look up why you add vinegar to the water when making a poached egg and this is what google told me:

vinegar should be added to the water as it begins to boil, as this will help the egg white to coagulate more quickly and form a neat and compact shape. without the vinegar, disaster may occur.

oh noo-ooo!! disaster!! i always knew eggs had a dangerous side.



mmmm, dangerous and delicious.

Hi! I've never commented before, but I felt the need to tell you that disaster will most definitely occur without the vinegar. I ended up with yucky egg-water "soup" and it was not good, and I didn't eat it...
also, they say swirling the water with a spoon just before you drop the egg in helps...I tried that on the day without the vinegar...it didn't help do anything but make a swirly egg soup.
But I imagine both tricks combined = magic.
yours look like they turned out, so that's super...supper.

Well, also have to say that I love your blog. And congratulations on your marriage and all that love.
