Jamie Oliver Poached Eggs

fathers day breakfast ideas


4 organic eggs

Salt and Pepper

2 slices of bread



  1. Fill a wide, deep pan with boiling water. Bring to a light simmer over a medium heat, add a pinch of salt.
  2. Crack one of your eggs into a cup and gently pour it into the water in one fluid movement. Repeat with the rest of the eggs. You’ll see them begin to cook immediately. Depending on your pan, a really soft poached egg should take around 2 minutes and a soft to firm one will need 4 minutes (it depends on the size of the eggs and whether you’re using them straight from the fridge).
  3. To check whether they’re done, remove one carefully from the pan with a slotted spoon and give it a gentle push with a teaspoon. If it feels too soft, put it back and give the eggs a minute or two more in the water to firm up.
  4. When they’re ready, put them on some paper towel to dry off and serve with buttered toast and a sprinkle salt and pepper.
