Subject: RE: BS: How to poach an egg
I agree about the bacon fat, but the sad fact is that you're not always having bacon with your eggs. Which leaves butter as next best, I reckon. I've tried olive oil, and a butter/olive oil mix, but it doesn't seem to improve on just butter. What I do know is that abominations such as margarine or (worse) low-fat spreads have not disgraced our kitchen now for a quarter of a century.
