There are many ways to cook eggs, scrambled being my favourite. Today I have decided to try poached eggs and I have found it is quite easy to make the perfect poached egg.

Poached eggs and bacon
Poached Egg with bacon and toast

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Serves: 1

1-2 eggs
1 tablespoon of white vinegar
1 large pot of water

In the large pot bring the water to the boil.
Add in the vinegar and have the eggs ready to go.
Using a slotted spoon stir the water fast to make it swirl, this is necessary for poaching.
Now quickly crack the egg but gently drop it in to the water.

Egg poaching
Cooking the egg for 2 minutes will give you a nice medium poached egg

Cook the egg for two minutes for the perfect medium poached egg. The yolk will be soft but all the white is cooked.
Skim the top of the water while it is cooking.
Using the slotted spoon gently lift the egg out, repeat process if you are making two.
Serve with toast and bacon if desired.
For soft poached cook the egg a little less or a little longer if you want it hard poached.
