Eggs are incredibly nutritious; they are a source of vitamin D (concentrated mainly in the yolk), an essential nutrient which most of us of in the UK do not get enough of. It also contains a nutrient called choline, essential for healthy brain function, among other vital functions.
Their high protein content also means they can help to maintain blood sugar levels to keep you feeling full until your next meal – meaning you’ll be less likely to reach for the biscuit tin come 10am. Poached eggs on toast are a great breakfast option but poaching them well can be notoriously difficult. By following these simple steps and having a few practice runs, you’ll be knocking up poached eggs for the whole family in no time.
It will take a few run-throughs to get it right, but keep practising and experimenting and you’ll soon perfect the technique – happy poaching!
