Poached Eggs on Toast

If you want beautiful poached eggs without any mess, give this a go. Take a length of cling film and lay it over a small bowl, pushing it down to line the bowl. Add a drizzle of olive oil, wipe around and then add salt and pepper. You could also add herbs, chilli or whatever else you fancy. Break an egg into the cling film and then just twist it down to form a loose seal. Repeat for as many eggs as you require.

Place the cling film parcels into a saucepan of boiling water and leave for 4 minutes. Remove from the pan, unwrap the eggs and serve on toast. There is no need for vinegar, salt or whatever else your granny’s mum told you would stop the eggs from going everywhere. You can also do a lot of eggs at the same time in a small saucepan, therefore helping to save the planet.
