Simon Boyle

Master the art of this breakfast staple. In my opinion, poached eggs are best served with sour dough toast.

Salted boiling water
White wine vinegar

Serves: 10
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

1. Bring a deep saucepan of water to the boil, add a tablespoon of white vinegar.

2. Crack each egg you intend to poach into a separate small cup or bowl.

3. Reduce the water to a simmer and using a whisk stir the water into a whirlpool.

4. Quickly and carefully, tip the eggs into the water one at a time close to the surface. Cook a maximum of 3 eggs at a time.

5. Cook for 3 minutes.

6. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon.

7. If not using the eggs straight away drop them into ice water to stop the cooking process.
