sous vide poached eggs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm wanting to change the way we poach eggs for brunch. Currently we poach off 150 eggs about an hour before service. We are far too busy to poach to order, but after running out of eggs yesterday and having to poach a la minute, I'm wonder how many eggs can I hold in a sous vide? I've done eggs this way at home with my sous vide, but will it work for 200 eggs? this is ideally how many I would like to hold.
