A simple recipe for poached eggs!

After watching Heston on telly the other night, I thought it would only be right to share his recipe for poached eggs. I attempted them myself and I must say they were delish!

You will need :

  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • salt and black pepper

Preparation Method

  1. Fill a saucepan with approximately 15-20cm of water then add the salt. Place a plate upside down in the bottom of the pan then place the pan over a medium heat and bring the water up to 80ºC.
  2. One at a time, crack each egg into a ramekin dish and pour it into a slotted spoon with small holes. Allow to drain any residual white for approximately 1–2 minutes.
  3. Lower the slotted spoon into the warm water and slide the spoon out. Allow to poach for 4 minutes.
  4. Remove with the slotted spoon and place on kitchen paper to drain the excess water. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
