Poached Egg Question

JPomer | Jul 6, 2006 10:36 PM

I have no problem poaching eggs in a nonstick skillet, but I'm trying to avoid teflon...
...When I tried poaching them in my enamaled cast iron, the eggs instantly sank to the bottom of the pan and stuck. I could loosen them with a spatula, but am I missing some trick?
I do add vinegar and usually break the egg into a small bowl to slide it in to the skillet.
Any help appreciated.
