Poached eggs in Milo

Poached eggs in Milo

Yes, this is my favourite breakfast every now and then. If you like condensed milk like me, you’ll love this. I had this for my Christmas Day breakfast….delicious. The milo with condensed milk is just heavenly itself. With 2 poached eggs with it, I can’t describe to you how good it is.

This sweet poached egg is what my mom cooked for us when we were young. The eggs were from our home- reared chicken….free range and organic. There’s always condensed milk in my house because I grew up drinking condensed milk in a bottle! Sadly, there’s no more condensed milk in Malaysia these days. It ’s called ’sweet creamer’ now because it is no longer made from milk, but from palm oil. Even the ones that I get here is not very delicious. The flavour is not there. The best is homemade condensed milk. It is easy to make at home. If you are interested to make you own condensed milk, click How To Make Condensed Milk. If you like it more runny, use less milk powder.



Milo is also one of my favourite drinks. It’s not easily available here. But I managed to buy it from Tesco. But if you can’t find it, I think it will just be as delicious with chocolate drink.

Here is my simple and easy breakfast, Poached Eggs In Milo With Condensed Milk recipe:

condensed milk
hot water

Condensed milk and milo

Condensed milk and milo

Add condensed milk and milo in a pot just like you would make the milo and condensed milk drink.

Hot milo drink

Hot milo drink

Add hot water and mix well. Put on the stove and bring it to a boil.

Break in eggs

Break in eggs

Break in the eggs, as many as you want. I added 2 only though I was very tempted to put in 4! Boil until the egg white turns white. Cook longer if you like the egg to be harder. I love my eggs to be very soft, like the first picture on top.

Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Enjoy.

Confused About Eggs?

There is a lot of confusion about eating eggs. Many people avoid eggs these days for fear of cholesterol and salmonella poisoning. Are eggs really that bad? Were they not once promoted as one of the most nutritious food on earth? I grew up eating lots of eggs and still do. We ate them poached, soft boiled, steamed or as omelette. Then if we had fever, we ate raw eggs!

Eggs are natural and are good for health. They don’t raise cholesterol in our blood. They are very nutritious to our bodies. It’s the saturated fat, especially the trans fat that does a lot of harm to our body, like margarine, shortening and certain cooking oils. These oils are hidden in lots of processed food, ready-cooked meals and desserts which is advisable to avoid. Having said that, the best is still home cooked food as we can be certain what we add in…..quality ingredients.

For more about eggs and health, click on BBC news on “Regular Eggs ‘No Harm’ To Health“. This is a very good article worth reading if you are not sure.

i had never tired this before! in singapore we just have half boil eggs with dark soya sauce and pepper! this is really unique! thanks for sharing mary!

noobcook  on January 12th, 2011

This is the first time I have seen milo and eggs together, and I’m sure it’s extra tasty with home made condensed milk and home-reared chicken eggs.

alan ong  on January 12th, 2011

have you tried sliced bread with condensed milk sprinkle with milo? yummy

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on January 12th, 2011

Wow, this is so weird to me! And yet so very appealing…

lequan  on January 12th, 2011

Mary, this is one of the most unique and interesting breakfast I have seen. I never would have thought about adding eggs to Milo. You sure are a master of creation.

Thank you for sharing your condensed milk recipe with us also. I do have a question though. As I don’t have a weighing scale, would 125 grams butter be equal to about half or one stick of butter?

Priya  on January 12th, 2011

Poached eggs in milo thats sounds soo new for me..

Mary  on January 12th, 2011

@j3ss kitch3n - The rest of my family half boiled eggs with soya sauce. They think I am weird to like my eggs this way….haha :D Well, I forgot to train them when they were young.

@noobcook - Give a try. You may like it, I hope so :D

@alan ong - Oh yes…that’s really addictive for me :D I have actually forgotten. I need to buy bread and enjoy it that way. Thanks very much for reminding!

@Conor @ HoldtheBeef - Haha…..good for those with sweet tooth and also egg lovers :D

@lequan - Weird combination for weird people like me…LOL. But I really like it :D Yes, 125 g is 1 stick of butter. You can put less if you want but I love the combination of flavours there.

@Priya - I’m sure it’s new to many. Give a try, maybe you’ll like it :D

suituapui  on January 12th, 2011

The traditional Foochow welcome for very respected guests - condensed milk in a glass, pour in hot boiling water…and break a fresh free-range egg into it…and serve! Had that once when I was a kid - wouldn’t say that I liked it…but was forced by my mum to swallow all of it - so as not to insult the host and to reciprocate the show of respect.

Mary  on January 12th, 2011

@suituapui - Wow…I didn’t know that…interesting! Next time take me along, I will happily eat all for you…haha :D

Edith  on January 12th, 2011

Mary, when I saw this I nearly wanted to cry for this was often prepared by my mom when we were in school. ooooohhhh how i missed this.

Going to attempt for my kids tomorrow.

Thanks for the beautiful memory.

Nadji  on January 12th, 2011

Une utilisation du lait concentré sucré que je ne connaissais pas du tout.
J’adorerai ce petit-déjeuné.
Bonne journée et à très bientôt.
See soon.

TasteHongKong  on January 12th, 2011

I have been poaching eggs in soy bean soups, let me try this simple and nice idea next time. Thanks for sharing : ).

Belinda @zomppa  on January 12th, 2011

I had Milo as a kid and LOVE condensed with milk (condensed milk with toast is awesome), but never though to put eggs….

Catherine  on January 12th, 2011

I’ve never seen a breakfast (or egg dish) like this before, Mary! You’re very creative with your recipes :) I still can’t poach an egg properly, how shocking is that?! I’m glad you’re sharing recipes that you enjoy so much, and thanks for the health talk on the eggs, I just had 2 scrambled ones for lunch!

gertrude  on January 12th, 2011

My mom used to make this for us when we were sick but I never like it. For me the combination of sweet milo and eggs taste weird :)

Mary  on January 12th, 2011

@Edith - Yeah, we share the same type of childhood food! :D It’s very delicious, right? I hope your kids like it.

@Nadji - Maybe you can try one day. Hope you like it. Have fun cooking :D

@TasteHongKong - I have not tried with soya bean milk. Must be very delicious. I would love to try one day. So far only steamed eggs with soya milk…..delicious :D

@Belinda @zomppa - I love condensed milk drizzled heavily over toast, too…mmm…soooo good! :D

@Catherine - What a surprise to you…haha. I’m sure you are not the only one :D It’s quite a strange combo actually. Poaching eggs is quite easy…just break the eggs into boiling liquid and dish out after a few minutes. I dish out when the egg white turns white and the egg yolk is still very soft :D I love scrambled eggs, too….good even for a light lunch.

@gertrude - Haha…I agree the combo is weird but I really love it :D Guess you like the savoury ones especially when you are sick. I don’t like sweet stuff when I am sick.

Lyndsey  on January 12th, 2011

What an interesting dish! I love seeing what others eat for breakfast. I have no seen this before. I don’t eat the same thing for breakfast now that I ate when I was a kid! ;D

serena @bigapplenosh  on January 12th, 2011

Wow, I’ve never heard of this combo before. I do LOVE Milo (and condensed milk) though, as well as poached eggs, so I’ll have to try this!

anncoo  on January 12th, 2011

Mary, I remember I saw someone posted this too. I seldom take milo because I always find it too sweet for me..and adding egg into it…hmmm..will try it when I’m sick ;DD

peteformation  on January 12th, 2011

Wah, this one is a healthy breakfast

lena  on January 12th, 2011

heard about this from some old people..tasty plus nutritious but i’m not sure about breaking the egg in there? all along i was thinking they stir the egg together with the drink..about the eggs, when then is more confusion, there will be more variations of eggs..over here omega eggs, free of antibiotic eggs, ‘chicken that only eat corn’ eggs, pastuerised eggs.. have a nice day!

Umm Mymoonah  on January 12th, 2011

Very interesting, never seen a recipe like this. Will try it sometime.

food-4tots  on January 12th, 2011

I love to drink MILO but have never tried to add egg before. Yours sounds and looks super delicious and packed with nutrients. I prefer the MILO from Australia than the one from Spore/ Msia.

Ginny Hartzler  on January 12th, 2011

I have never heard of milo and had to Google it. So it is like a chocolate malt powder? How much powder do you put in and how much condensed milk? This recipe looks like lots of fun! I must admit i have never heard of such a thing. So it would be like eggs in a hot cocoa drink? I think this is the strangest recipe I have seen, yet I like both things, so why not make them together? I will try it!

Mary  on January 12th, 2011

@Lyndsey - I don’t always eat the same type of food that I ate when I was a kid but this one contains my favourite ingredients. It’s healthy, too :D

@serena @bigapplenosh - Now you can put all your favourite ingredients together like me and smile! :D

@anncoo - Wonderful to know there are others who share the same breakfast love with me. I would rather you are not sick to enjoy this! :D

@peteformation - Yes, it is even though it is sweet…just count the eggs :D

@lena - I have not heard about breaking up the eggs. I should try that…flowery milo eggs :D What..so many types of eggs! Is it another business tactics? I mean who is able to tell the difference? I definitely can’t…haha

@Umm Mymoonah - Give a try. Hope you like it :D

@food-4tots - Is there any different? Now I wonder whether the UK Milo tastes better. I think I find it the same. Maybe the condensed milk makes up for the difference :D

@Ginny Hartzler - Oh yes, you got it right. It is like a chocolate malt drink. Just add the amount that you like. I usually use something like 2T Milo, 1T (or less) condensed milk and about 3/4C water for 2 eggs. You can be flexible with the amount like whether you want it more chocolatey or sweeter….yes, like eggs in a hot chocolate drink. Give a try, Ginny. Hope you like it :D

Faith  on January 12th, 2011

I love poached eggs but I’ve never had them cooked in a sweet liquid! I’m very interested and I’d love to try them!

Swathi  on January 12th, 2011

poached egg in condense milk sounds delicious. This looks interesting to try.

fimère  on January 12th, 2011

lequan  on January 12th, 2011

This is not weird at all, but rather refreshing and unique. I love this! Thank you for answering the butter question.

teresa  on January 12th, 2011

a very unique dish, but i’d love to try it!

Mary  on January 12th, 2011

@Faith - Give a try, Faith. Hope you like it :D

@Swathi - Hope you like it. Have fun cooking :D

@fimère - You are most welcome. Hope you like it :D

@rebecca - Yes, I guess most kids would love this. I’m just an overgrown kid…haha. That huge elephant was sure very well behaved. But then I would still be afraid…just not sure whether he will change his mind when he sees me…LOL :D

@Aipi - Thanks very much, Aipi! :D

@lequan - Thanks for seeing it a different way :D I’m the only odd one in my family who loves the eggs cooked this way. My girls would go….eeeewwww! have fun making condensed milk :D

@teresa - Hope you like it, Teresa. Have fun cooking :D

Blackswan  on January 12th, 2011

Mary, kids gonna love this!

Betty @ scrambled hen fruit  on January 12th, 2011

This looks very interesting! I’ve never poached an egg in anything other than water, but this looks yummy! I’ve never seen Milo here, but I’m wondering if chocolate malted milk powder would work.

somewhere in singapore  on January 12th, 2011

Never tried this b4…

Ivy Liacopoulou  on January 12th, 2011

I used to get Milo for my children when they were little and haven’t seen around for ages. I am sure they would love it this way.

myasiankitchen  on January 13th, 2011

wow!! I never eat poached egg in Milo!! very interesting!! I had running yolk poach kampung eggs when lived in Msia ,love it!! but here where to get kampong egg?

Pepy @Indonesia Eats  on January 13th, 2011

I love Milo and just bought it yesterday! The other day, I shared a story about milo with my Filipino friend here. Both of us have the same memory of milo when we were a kid :)

Jeannie  on January 13th, 2011

This post reminds me of my childhood when my mom made us this for breakfast too…I agree it is very delicious!

Mary  on January 13th, 2011

@Blackswan - I bet they do :D

@Betty @ scrambled hen fruit - I’m sure chocolate malted drink will do the trick, too. Give a try. Hope you like it :D

@somewhere in singapore - Give a try. It’s really good. I like it :D

@Ivy Liacopoulou - It’s difficult to get Milo here, too, but I’m glad I finally found it. Hope you can find it over at your place :D

@myasiankitchen - I can’t get kampong eggs here, too…those small eggs laid by the kampong chicken. I can only get free range organic eggs. They are quite big. That’s the closest to get here :D

@Pepy @Indonesia Eats - I think Milo has done wonders, right? It brings back sweet memories of our childhood :D

@Jeannie - Yeah…we share the same childhood food :D

Biren @ Roti n Rice  on January 13th, 2011

I have heard about poaching the egg in Milo though I have never tried it. Growing up we had Milo almost on a daily basis. I can buy Milo at the Asian grocery store but I drink mostly tea now.

5 Star Foodie  on January 13th, 2011

I’ve never had anything like this, and milo is also new to me. This very unique for sure, sounds like a must try!

The Kitchen Masochist  on January 13th, 2011

This combination of eggs poached in milo and condensed milk is completely new to me. I have to admit that it’s a bit strange to me. Amazing what you learn through food blogging!

Milo is pretty popular over here too and have never heard of it until I came here.


tigerfish  on January 13th, 2011

It is the first time I see poached eggs in MILO! :O Really strange to me. Good that you bring out the benefits of egg. Eggs are actually quite nutritious. A lot of people avoid them due to cholesterol but I believe there are other foods which affects the cholesterol. Don’t blame it on eggs. :p

Joanne  on January 13th, 2011

I’m so glad you’re spreading the word about how good eggs are for you! This breakfast looks delicious!

Drick  on January 13th, 2011

this is about as different as I can think of, a strange combination to me yet I am not turned off by it at the least, not if you made it….

Cookie  on January 13th, 2011

Oh, thanks for this post - it brought back fond memories!!!

My mum made this for us when young. The only diff is that she did not boil the milo, just beat an egg into the boiling hot drink.

redkathy  on January 13th, 2011

Oh gosh Mary I Googled milo before commenting :) Very interesting combination. Eggs and chocolate, I don’t know…

kristy  on January 14th, 2011

I personally prefer milo iced! Frankly, I have never had egg in my milo before. haha… Funny huh! But I’m sure this must be very delicious & filling. Thanks for sharing. Hope you’re enjoying your day.
Cheers, Kristy
p/s how’s the weather over your side?

Mary  on January 14th, 2011

@Biren @ Roti n Rice - Whah…you have been eating very healthy…very good :D I still have my ‘unhealthy’ favourite food every now and then :P

@5 Star Foodie - Give a try. It’s very delicious. Hope you like it :D

@The Kitchen Masochist - Wonder whether you like the Milo that you had discovered there. I only like it with condensed milk. That’s also how they make it in the shop….sweet and delicious :D

@tigerfish - Haha…strange but delicious :D Yeap, hope people don’t avoid eggs but to enjoy them.

@Joanne - Yes, I love eggs so I must promote eggs…haha :D

@Drick - Haha..strange as it may be but it’s really delicious :D

@Cookie - Oh….we share the same childhood food! :D I have not tried beating the egg into the hot drink. Must try that next time.

@redkathy - Yes, quite like an eggy chocolate drink :D Maybe you can give a try. maybe you will like it, something different for breakfast.

@kristy - Oh, it’s too cold to drink iced here now. I will be under many thick layers of blanket after that…haha :D It’s still freezing….bbrrrrr. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Sushma Mallya  on January 14th, 2011

@Ananda Rajashekar - Haha…you have to taste it to know how you would react :D

@penny aka jeroxie - Give a try, Penny. May be you will like it :D

tasteofbeirut  on January 19th, 2011

Eating eggs for me is a rare occurrence; eating them with Milo would be an event worth writing home about!
All I can say is: very creative!

Dhi  on January 21st, 2011

Now this is intriguing. First time I’ve heard about it. So weird but got me curious. I’ve gotta try…. hahaha. Thanks Mary.

Mary  on January 22nd, 2011

@tasteofbeirut - haha…it sounds like a weird combination but it’s one of my crazy favourite :D

@Dhi - Yes, weird combination but worth trying. Hope you like it :D

Kitchen Butterfly  on January 25th, 2011

Wow, we love Milo too.I have a large tin like yours. I would NEVER have thought of eggs poached in them. Interesting combination

Mary  on January 25th, 2011

@Kitchen Butterfly - Give a try. You may like it. Talk about Milo, I’m running to make one now…with condensed milk! :D

Three-Cookies  on January 28th, 2011

Glad to have discovered your blog. You have interesting (and unusual) recipes. Milo and condensed milk would be awesome, I never thought of adding eggs. Now I am curious

Mary  on January 29th, 2011

@Three-Cookies - Thanks very much for visiting! Haha…my unusual recipes just came from some unusual cravings for some ingredients :D Hope you like this one.

Does half boiled egg work?

Mary  on August 16th, 2012

@Anonymous - It should work. I love hard boiled eggs :D
