Poached eggs in a muffin tin -need tips for tomorrow

cayjohan | Nov 30, 201307:59 PM     13

Tomorrow is our annual post-Thanksgiving turkey hash-n-eggs dinner. We usually do ten fried eggs for five diners, and that *just* works out for timing. This year, our kids have decided to join us, and we are up to eight at the table. All egg lovers. 16 over-easy eggs for a sit-down seems a little much for me, and I found this link http://cookingtipoftheday.blogspot.co... for oven-poaching eggs in muffin tins. I did a test run with three eggs this evening, and lost my nerve and over cooked. They were beautiful hard cooked eggs for a chef salad dinner, but I waaaay over cooked for what I wanted. I probably should have
yielded to the recipe, but...y'know.

Do any of you have any experience with this method of oven-poaching? I'm looking at a dozen and a half for our dinner, and I think this might be the best method, but I need guidance. Or cheerleading. Or something. :-)

Anyone? Thanks.

Cay
