The perfect poached egg in 7 steps:

  1. Bring water to the boil in a pan.
  2. Add a drop of vinegar – that stops the egg white from leaking out of the mold. Use a light vinegar to prevent the egg from being discolored.
  3. Place a layer of plastic wrap in a cup, brush it with oil and drop a fresh egg into it. Twist the ends of the shrink wrap together and knot them to form a little sack.
  4. Turn down the heat - the water should only simmer.
  5. Place the egg in its sack gently into the water and let it cook for 4 minutes in hot water.
  6. Take the sack out of the water with a slotted spoon.
  7. Open the sack – ready to go!
