  • 1 pinch chili flakes

3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to a plate lined with a paper towel until ready to serve.

CHEF TIP:

Poached eggs keep overnight well. Transfer poached eggs to a bowl of cool water, then let chill in icebox until next day. To reheat eggs, lower them into simmering water with a slotted spoon and cook 20 to 30 seconds and serve with grits.
