  1. Step 1

    Add water to a large saucepan until 8cm deep. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer.
  2. Step 2

    Crack an egg into a small bowl. Using a large spoon, gently stir the water in a circular motion to create a whirlpool. This will draw the egg into the centre of the saucepan. Carefully slide the egg into the water.
  3. Step 3

    Allow 3½ - 4 minutes for poached eggs with firm whites and soft, runny yolks. Allow 4-5 minutes for firmer yolks.
  4. Step 4

    Remove eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.
