Eggs are a great way to start the morning. They’re filling, 100% naturally nutritious and packed full of protein to power you through the day!

You can enjoy poached eggs as a quick snack or a light meal at any time of the day.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 eggs per person
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • Toasted bread or muffins
  • Salt and pepper to serve

METHOD

1. Fill a large shallow frying pan or a small-medium pot with water 3-4 cm deep and heat to a rolling boil.
2. Add vinegar.
3. Break an egg into a small cup or ramekin, and reduce water to a low heat ie simmer.
4. Gently pour the egg into the water and repeat with any additional eggs.
5. Cook gently for 3-5 minutes, until cooked to your liking, or when the yolk is set and the white is almost firm.
6. Lift the eggs out using a slotted spoon or fish slice and drain excess water. Gently pat the spoon or slice on top of a paper towel or tea towel to help this process.
