My awesome tip to Poaching Eggs...

Eggs are a great source of nutrients including protein, essential vitamins A, D, E, and B group as well as minerals iron, phosphorus and zinc.

They’re relatively low in saturated fat, making them a healthy fast food for all the family. They are very low in calories with only around 80 cals per medium egg – so they are great if you’re health conscious, especially combined with vegetables and salads as part of healthy balanced meals!

If you want to perfectly poach eggs, but have little time to play around with choosing a method that works... try this solution...

1. Take a tea cup and insert clingfilm to line the cup

2.. Crack a medium sized egg into the clingfilm

3. Season with pepper, chilli or another spice or herb of your choice... garlic salt tastes wonderful!

4. Twist the top of the clingfilm to seal the egg in

5. Cook the egg in a pan of boiling water for around 2 minutes

6. Take the egg out and slightly cool...

.... Here you will find the perfect poached egg!

I love poached eggs, but am not a fan of the often soggy toast I get fromt he poach water I can never quite drain off.
