Perfect Poached Egg Muffin
The best eggs for poaching are the freshest eggs you can find, if eggs are older the whites start to thin and you will lose the lovely compact white around the yolk.
Ingredients: Serves two
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Bring a small saucepan of water just to the boil then reduce heat so it is barely simmering, stir the vinegar into the water.
Crack an egg into a small jug, then lower the jug with the egg in it close to the water and gently slip the egg into the water, quickly repeat with remaining egg.
Let eggs cook for about 3 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are soft, leave in longer for a firmer poached egg. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs, drain well and serve in a toasted wholemeal muffin.
