Today, we are going to share with you a really simple way to make scrummy poached eggs.
We have tried a few methods:
1. Using these Egg Poaching Moulds (available from most kitchen shops). You simply grease the moulds, add the eggs and put in boiling water. It is quite easy but we do not think the eggs are the best texture once cooked. (ie. they aren’t very delicate)
2. Adding vinegar to boiling water and stirring the eggs around, as seen on the Hairy Bikers series. This method can work but it is a lot trickier than it sounds!
