Poached Eggs With Hollandaise Sauce and Potato Salad

A poached egg is an egg that has been cooked, outside the shell, by poaching (or sometimes steaming), as opposed to simmering or boiling liquid. This method of preparation can yield more delicately cooked eggs than cooking at higher temperatures such as with boiling water.
