How to make the perfect Poached egg in 5 easy steps.
Have you ever realised how hard it is to poach an egg in a pan? Absolute nightmare. They either end up cracked or come out looking like Mr Tickles.
I have been let in on a very useful secret that I’m going to share because I’m super nice.. and instruct you on how to cook the perfect poached eggs.
1. Boil water in a saucepan
2. Use a pin to prick the top of the egg to make a tiny hole.
This makes the egg slightly less liquidy, making it easier to drop in later and much less likely to end up separating in the saucepan.
4. Add a few splashes of white vinegar into the boiling water and spin the water with a fork
The vinegar keeps the egg together. After a few minutes you have the perfect yolky poached egg.
