    Everyone has their methods, but if you've not tried poaching before, this is how I do it... fill a large pan with boiling water from a kettle and add a drizzle of vinegar. Bring pan back to the boil.

    Meanwhile, crack your egg(s) into a mug (I usually do maximum two eggs to a mug, so use two mugs if you're poaching 3 or 4 eggs)

    Take the pan off the heat so that the water 'calms down' a bit and swirl the water using a fork so you have a nice quick whirl pool.

    Quick as you can, pour the eggs from the mugs into the water and return to the heat

    At this point, it's normal for it to look like it's all gone a bit pear shaped, but keep going - they might not be as bad as you think

    Cook eggs over the medium heat for two minutes - any more than that you'll have a hard yolk. Remove the eggs promptly from the water using a slotted spoon onto a plate or paper towel to drain off a bit of the water.

    Then transfer your egg(s) to your dish and enjoy!
