  2. Then reduce to a simmer: gets some small bowls ready for your eggs, this way the eggs will keep their shape and you’ll be able to cook them all at the same time. Crack them carefully and check for bits of shell.
  3. Slip the eggs into the water clockwise so you know which ones are done first. Cover with a lid and turn off the heat. The key to poaching is a gentle heat which will give your eggs a firm white and a loose yolk.
  4. I just 4 minutes you’ll have delicious delicate poached eggs. All that’s left to do is scoop it out, drain and enjoy
