Air fryer poached eggs are a game changer: 'It worked'

Be honest, how many of us know how to make a perfect poached egg? And raise your hand if you can seamlessly make one without mess or a whirlpool of white and orange liquid?

Same.

Well, your poached egg experience is about to become as easy as touching a button, because that's pretty much all you have to do when making one in an air fryer.

TikTok cook Eileen Bell has shared a revolutionary video on how to make a perfect poached egg in an air fryer, and it is changing people's lives.

The game-changing hack requires just three simple steps.

First, Eileen pours steaming hot water into a small ramekin and then cracks one egg into the bowl.

She then places the ramekin inside the air fryer at 170 degrees for 11 minutes to cook.

After a few minutes have passed, she removes the ramekin from the air fryer, scoops out the egg and bears witness to "the most beautiful egg I ever did see".

Eileen reveals a close-up of the delicate yolk being sliced over a piece of toast, showing the golden liquid ooze out like silk.
