get a small cup or ramikin and line it with a large square of cling film then crack an egg into it:


gather the edges of the cling film and twist them together:

plop your eggbomb into a pan of boiling water, cover and let it simmer for 4/5 minutes:



remove from pan:


remove egg from cling film and eat:

Why dont you just put vinger in the water and stir before you put egg in lol
That's what I do, create a whirlpool and plop the egg into that.
There's another old wife's tale, something about putting a matchstick in the water first, but I've never tried it.

Kids love a poached egg on toast :)

I have poached eggs on toast at least twice a week :)

I'm going to try the cling film method though!

I don't smoke so maybe that's why I never tried it lol
Plus, would you leave the pink bit on or not???
Probably ruin the egg

what does vinger do skybabe never heard this one before
vinigar reduces the viscouscity ?spelling? even the right word? lol, how sticky water actually is, makes it a bit thinner) meaning the egg holds together better as its able to force the water out, giving the egg a better chance of staying in one piece

I used to love eggs, until I realised I couldnt eat them :( Makes me sick, only started a few years ago... Some kind of reflux !

Used to love poached eggs :) mum used to have a kind of plastic ball you crack the egg into... screw it up and let it cook.. had a little hole in the top and bottom.. had a small amount of egg come out but was wicked.. like a golf ball :p lol
