Total time



Deliciously runny poached eggs served on toasted wholemeal bread. Cooked in boiling water without using vinegar. Vinegar is not required to stop the eggs from sticking.


  • 2 2 large eggs

  • 1 1 Dash of salt

  • 1 1 Dash of pepper

  • 2 2 slices of wholemeal bread

  • Vegan Butter or Marg


  • Boil enough water to cover the eggs in a non-stick pan
  • Leave the water boiling
  • Add the eggs to the pan so the white goes in slowly and doesn't spread
  • Once the edges of the eggs become free use a slotted spoon to gently free the rest of the egg
  • As soon as the white is cooked remove the eggs
  • Make a hole in the white with your knife to drain the excess water
  • For large eggs cook for 2m30s to 2m45s on high heat

Recipe Video


  • Always use eggs that have been in the fridge
  • Leave the egg to cook in boiling water. It will become free from the pan as it cooks. It may need a little help with a spatular towards the end of the cooking period.
