Poached Eggs 5 0 5 4
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • 5 mins

    30 mins

    35 mins

  • Yields: As many as you need


As many eggs as you need or can fit

Silicone egg holders or silicone cupcake cases

Spray oil


1Add approx 1-2cm of warm water to bottom of slow cooker

2Spray each silicone case lightly with non stick oil spray - this helps them slide out easy when cooked

3(I used a combination of silicone egg cups and silicone cupcake cases - use whatever you have)

4Crack one egg into each cup and place carefully into the water so as not to tip them over

5Cover with tea towel under your lid

6Cook on high for 30mins (or less depending on how you like your eggs)

7And you can go about doing whatever else you need to while these eggs take care of themselves- too easy!:)

Fantastic way to cook eggs! Won’t do it any other way now! I used ramekins sprayed with oil. My cooker cooks hot so only took 30 min for very firm yolk. I will reduce cooking time next time.

Yes you could 🙂
Just sit them in some shallow water

I love cooking eggs this way. So easy.
Pre heat your slow cooker first till water starts warming then place in for 30/40 mins (still depends on cooker) I found is the best way. I use Breville/ Kmart brand/ Ronson/ Original Crock Pot and Sunbeam, each one has different cooking times and heating speeds. But my Breville the Flavour Maker 7L slow cooker works the best and has been the most reliant and accurate of all my cookers.

Very simple and easy recipe for poached eggs 😊 leaves me time to cook the rest of breakky on the bbq while the eggs are cooking away 🙂 Such a great idea Paulene! Have made these plenty of times over the past two weeks and have finally nailed cooking time in the 3lt ambiano takes about 40 to 50 mins to have perfect poached eggs 😋

hi, I tried the eggs and came out good, they took about 35-40 mins…will do them again .really easy…my eggs were about size 7 .my sc was a 3 litre.

this could be usefull if you had few of family or freinds at one time maybe and not a rush thing to do…i’ll try it ..thanks

I don’t no 🙂
But different cookers will cook different times 🙂
Now you know your required time 🙂

Did you prewarm your slow cooker, I tried this recipe & it took nearly 90 minutes


January 18, 2016

Thanks Claire I’ll try again & see where we get to

Nothing wrong 🙂
Your cooker probably just cooks not as hot as some.
Just increase the time and you’ll know what time yours needs from then on in 🙂

We tried this this morning with 8 eggs in our 7.5l crockpot on high and after 30 mins they were still uncooked and the egg whites were still clear! What have we done wrong?

It really will depend on your slow cooker but generally speaking I would suggest checking from 20 to 30mins onwards
Once you know just what your’s needs you can do it that time every time 🙂

I do love a runny yolk, in your opinion how long should I allow for a runny yolk but a firm white? Thanks x

The paper cases would be a little weak when wet would be my concern … but you could try it an let us know? 🙂
You could also use little ramekins or mugs etc too

when doing these could you use the paper cases that you use for cakes or wouldn’t it work?

Sorry to hear that Charlie. Our text size hasn’t changed though?
Could you perhaps increase the percentage on your screen display instead … eg to 120% display so everything is larger? 🙂

The text is way too small. Not very good for the partially sighted. ;-(
