Egg poaching method

not a recipe but i thought i would share an egg poaching method, seens as though i have tried most methods and none have ever given me good results 100% of the time (exploding micro poach eggs, seperating in a pan, and unevenly cooked in weird contraption)... so the secret is to poach them in a frying pan!, fill with water 2 about 1 and a half inches, get the water 2 start bubbling a bit, add the eggs (i do 3 at a time), and spoon extra water over them, then remove using a slotted spoon thing and dry with some kitchen roll. voila 100% sucsess rate even 4 the worst cooks.

    If you fancy doing it the pro way then poach them with vinegar in your boiling water.

    Stir the water to give it a whirlpool effect then put the egg in the middle and the whirlpool effect with the vinegar will help wrap the egg up for your perfect poached egg

    Make sure your egg's really fresh as well, otherwise it'll just turn into a big, white, frothy mess in the pan!

    You can tell if your egg's fresh by putting it in a bowl of water. If it floats it's NOT fresh. You can also spin it, if it spins on the spot and doesn't wobble all over the place, then it' fresh!

    If ya can't be gud, be gud at it

    I read a semi-scientific review of different egg-poaching methods, and the results they gave (which were marked on appearance, texture, wastage, etc.). The method which came top is this:

    Take a small piece of cling film and stretch it over a cup, so there are a couple of inches free on all sides. Push the centre into the cup so that there is a fair dip. Break the egg into the cling film and then twist the corners of the cling film together so that you have a completely enclosed egg. Drop the whole thing into the boiling water and poach for the usual amount of time. The cling film will peel off easily.

    A bizarre method, but apparently works great, with absolutely no white wastage of course.

    are you sure the cling film won't melt?
