Momofuku Slow-Poached Eggs
Eggs. They fit Niall's diet, so they're one of the first things to cook. It was kind of crazy to cook these eggs for 40 minutes, crack them, and have them slide out of the shell. I'm not sure if they turned out like they were supposed to, but I liked them. They're the first non-scrambled eggs I've had in about 20 years. Mixed into ramen it didn't bother me (like most runny eggs do.)
I used our biggest pan and put the eggs on a steamer. It took AGES to slowly heat the pot to 140 degrees F but because it took so long it wasn't hard to keep the temperature constant. The candy thermometer was so helpful to monitor the heat.
