The Perfect Poached Egg

Updated: Jun 11

Discover how long to cook it for and new ways to serve it at breakfast, brunch or lunch.



INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tomatoes, halved

  • ½ tsp rapeseed oil

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 small ripe avocado

  • 2 slices seeded wholemeal soda bread (see goes well with)

  • 2 handfuls rocket


METHOD


STEP 1

Heat a non-stick frying pan, very lightly brush the cut surface of the tomatoes with a little oil, then cook them, cut-side down, in the pan until they have softened and slightly caramelised. Meanwhile, heat a pan of water, carefully break in the eggs and leave to poach for 1-2 mins until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny.


STEP 2

Halve and stone the avocado, then scoop out the flesh and smash onto the bread. Add the eggs, grind over black pepper and add a handful of rocket to each portion. Serve the tomatoes on the side.
