A poached egg is an egg that has been cooked by poaching, as opposed to simmering or boiling liquid
500ml x water.
1 x tbsp. white wine vinegar.
500ml x cold water.
2 x eggs or more if you like.
Salt and pepper to season.
Mix the water and the vinegar in a pot and bring it to the boil.
Crack one egg at a time in a saucer and set aside.
Once the water has come to the boil, using a spoon, stir fast round and round to create a while pool effect.
Quickly and gently pour the egg into the whirlwind water.
The white should continue with the whirlwind motion and cover the yoke.
Allow to boil for a couple of minutes, then using a slotted spoon, remove the egg from the pot and immediately drop into the cold water.
This process helps to wash the vinegar off the eggs.
Gently while the egg is in the water, trim the funny shaped white pieces off the eggs.
Remove from the cold water and gently place on toast, season with salt and pepper and enjoy immediately.
I served my eggs on hot toast with some cheese slices, chopped chives and a drizzle of mayonnaise.
