Eggs - how do you like yours? Poached? Unfertilised?

I was telling 2 Polish people today about poached eggs. I explained the process to each of them in great detail, but the concept was totally alien to them. Is poaching unheard of throughout the whole of Poland?

What is your favourite way of cooking/eating eggs?

Scrambled but nice and runny or poached ones are beautiful if done right.

No I did not, I stuck to Nudle, Milka, Barszcz (Czerwona), Chleb and assorted meats.

Aswell as eating out of course. :) Couldn't resist this....

First I sauté (plenty of) onion until slightly brown, then add sliced mushrooms (if available), leave frying until they're ready, add 2-3 eggs, fry for a moment and voilá. Usually I end up with scrambled :)

If it was scrambled eggs you could brand it gegs (crossword buffs will get it). Now what's an anagram of poached?

The most common Polish egg dish I've seen would have to be hard-boiled. I've also had scrambled egg with bacon. I have not yet seen a Pole fry or poach an egg.

I tell a lie. My Polish flatmate used to have fried eggs nearly every day. Usually about three per meal. How could I forget?

It is totally unheard of here to have poached eggs. I remember making them for my ex, she was in total shock...

Strange to more than just a Pole, but to some Poles. You are an example of a Pole to whom it is not strange. Some more Poles may be like you in this regard. By the way, could I ask how you serve them? Any condiments or accompanying beverages?

I like poached eggs, but I've never actually done any for myself. Maybe tomorrow.

I heard this phrase earlier. not sure this is poached eggs. This is how you cook poached eggs...
Boil some water, lightly salted.
Crack some eggs into the lightly boiling water.
Remove the eggs after 3 minutes.

other forms of poaching are prevalent?! I don't think people poach (cooking I mean) fish either?

I do like a dash of balsamic with fried eggs. It civilises them slightly.

What's your egg recipe?

How did I manage to post this with the word "nagrywałem" at the top?

Poaching is also hunting or fishing illegally. Or when someone is headhunted to work at a different company.

fish?

Smoked haddock is often poached in milk
