Thread Name: BS: How to poach an egg
Subject: RE: BS: How to poach an egg
I can't think of a bigger abomination than a pickled egg. A pickled onion or a pickled wally is a thing of beauty, but why pickle an egg? Eggs are cheap, universally available and easy to cook. I take cold hard-boiled eggs on picnics. I'd rather hack off the family jewels with a rusty machete than eat a pickled egg.

Egg butty for two:

Boil four or five eggs for approx. 7 minutes. Plunge immediately into cold water. Butter four slices of bread. Shell eggs, place in a bowl while still faintly warm with a good squeeze of Hellman's mayo. Beat to not quite a pulp. I like to chop the eggs in the bowl with the blade of a knife. Leave it a bit chunky. Dollop on to bread, spread it out, cover with other slice and devour. Your house will smell of farts for two hours, which means a two-hour window for farting at will, preferably silently.
