1.      Fill a small saucepan about 2/3 full of water.

2.    Bring the water to a gentle simmer.  You don’t want a rapid boil.

3.      Add a dash of vinegar.  This helps the egg white to coagulate more quickly so it holds together nicely.  Not necessary if your eggs are very fresh.

4.      Break each egg into a small dish or a cup and slip into the simmering water

5.      Set the timer for 3 minutes

6.      Remove the eggs one at a time with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.


The perfect poached egg is still liquid in the centre but not too runny
