One of my favorite parts about running our Cape Cod B&B is creating great gluten free menus that everyone can enjoy. A frequent crowd pleaser is a savory dish of Country Potatoes with Poached Eggs. It’s a simple and hearty meal that provides lots of energy for Cape Cod adventures. It’s very easy to make for your g-free friends and family at home.

If you are tired of policing restaurant food, give yourself the gift of a few days without that stress — we will do it for you. And remember to read the reviews of our Inn on travel websites. So many of our guests mention how good the food is, we must be doing something right.

The Secret of Poached Eggs

The easy way to make poached eggs


Many guests have asked me for the secret to my perfect poached eggs. I always tell them it’s easy when you have the right tools!

Start with a stainless steel egg-poaching pan (you can find them at most kitchen supply stores or online.) I use a 10-inch pan with an insert of removable egg cups and a glass lid.

The insert separates the boiling water from the eggs, and the glass lid lets you watch the eggs cook.


Poached Egg Directions

• Add enough water to the bottom so it won’t cover the insert.
• Put in the insert and place the lid on the pan.
• Turn the burner to high heat and wait for the water to boil.
• When the water has come to a boil, put a pat of butter or some oil in the bottom of the cups.
• Swirl the oil around to prevent the eggs from sticking to the cups.
• Add the eggs and put the lid back on the pan.
• Give the pan a little shake to test for firmness.
• Once the eggs have just a slight wiggle when you shake, remove the cups and slide each one onto a plate.

Voilà! Perfectly poached eggs in minutes.
