Thread Name: BS: How to poach an egg
Subject: RE: BS: How to poach an egg
Just fish the egg out with a slotted spoon and let it drip for a sec. Delia's method is fine but the thing takes over ten minutes! That's over-egging the pudding. This morning I had an egg poached, a roll toasted and a slice of Bury black pudding fried in butter, all done in seven minutes flat (only three for the egg). I just tipped the hot black pudding butter on to each half of the roll. Delicious. I suppose I could have just fried the roll in the butter, on reflection. I even made coffee at the same time!

Those poaching pans make the egg white go too hard and they are the devil to wash up. You don't know what you're missing! Neither did I!

Mr Red, why does a Frenchman have only one egg for breakfast?

Because to a Frenchman one egg is un oeuf.
