I have wanted to learn how to poach an egg for some time now, I love eggs but I was always put off by how complicated it looked. Previously I used a pan that had a poaching add-on but when I changed my hob it could no longer be used.
I visited YouTube to see if I could find a video on how to do it and came across this great one by Jamie Oliver – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAWduxoCgVk this video shows 3 ways on how to poach an egg, the last method is the one I did
Step One: Get A Ramekin
Step Two: Place Clingfilm in the Ramekin
Step Three: Place a little oil at the bottom and with your finger cover the clingfilm with the oil
Step Four: Crack and egg into the cling film
Step Five: Lift up the cling film out of the ramekin and tie a not in the top so the egg is in a ball shape
Step Six: Get a pan and get the water so that it is simmering (do not boil!)
Step Seven: Place the clingfilm egg into the simmering water and leave for 4 minutes
Step Eight: Take Egg out and cut the clingfilm away and place the egg
Step Nine: Enjoy!!
If like me you have tried and tried to learn how to poach an egg, this method is by far the easiest. Best of all it can be done with more than one egg at a time, therefore if your making many simply prepare them all and drop them all into the water at the same time…perfect!
