Simple steps to a perfect poached egg



  • 1 fresh egg
  • boiling water
  • dash vinegar




  • In a deep heavy based pan bring water to the boil, add a dash of vinegar.
  • Turn heat down to medium and when the bubbles subside, swirl the water in a circular motion
  • Place egg in a small bowl to make it easier to slide the egg into the water, (if cooking more then one egg, repeat this with the extra egg/eggs)
  • Gently put the egg/eggs into the water. (If the egg is fresh it will all hold together).
  • Cook for 2-4 minutes depending on how you like your yolk. Carefully lift the egg out with a slotted spoon, feel the yolk, (soft yolks should wobble). Drain well.
