Poached Eggs


This is one of my absolute favourite things to have for breakfast (or for any meal). It is such a simple recipe but people always ask me how to make them. There is a general belief that poached eggs are complicated to make but they are so simple anyone can master them. I normally have two large poached eggs on one slice of brown toast for breakfast.image


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 slice bread
  • Knob of butter


  1. Bring a medium pot of water to the boil.
  2. Using a spoon, swirl the water around in a circle. Crack the eggs into the centre of the pot. Swirling the water like this ensures that the egg stays together.
  3. Allow the eggs to boil (not too violently) for 2-3 minutes, depending on your preference.
  4. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and serve on a piece of buttered brown toast.
