Sous Vide Eggs

A sous vide cooker gives these slow-cooked eggs a jammy, creamy center that resembles the perfect poached egg. Eat these eggs alone for a filling breakfast or snack, or serve them on toast or an English muffin for a simple eggs Benedict.

Total Time:
20 mins
8 eggs


  • 8 large eggs

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Prepare a sous vide water bath in a 6- to 8-quart stockpot. Heat water to 167°F. When the water is ready, use a slotted spoon to lower eggs into the pot. Cover the pot as much as possible with plastic wrap or a baking sheet. Cook for 15 minutes for a jammy yolk consistency.

  2. Peel the eggs and place 2 in each of 4 serving bowls; sprinkle evenly with salt.

To make ahead

Hold eggs in the pot at 140°F for up to 2 hours. Or cool them in an ice-water bath for 10 minutes and refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Reheat at 140°F for 15 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
