FOOD: The Perfect Poached Egg

If you’ve been reading my blog recently, you’ll see I’ve been trying to eat healthily and try to cook more varied food at home. So, when I was asked to review a ProCook Egg Poacher, I immediately jumped at the chance! This isn’t something I’d normally review, but the perfect poached egg has alluded me for quite some time and I thought this could finally end my egg-related kitchen disasters. Poached eggs are such a great as they are cooked in such a healthy way so I’ve really been trying to get it right.  I’m fine with cooking scrambled egg recipes, but poached eggs just turn into a disaster! So far tried the technique of dropping an egg into boiling water, this just ended up an eggy watery mess, so I popped one in microwave, this was better yet so rubbery. With no luck yet I was glad to be giving this a go!
The ProCook Egg Poacher is a high quality non-stick pan with four cups to cook up to four eggs at a time. It’s so easy as you just boil a little water and let the eggs cook gently over a low heat. The pan also has a 10 year guarantee which is pretty amazing too – I’ve bought many cheap pans in my time and they just don’t last so I’m all for investing in something slightly higher quality. 

So, one night this week I was home alone so decided to cook myself something simple. I cooked two eggs using the Pro-cook Egg Poacher, some pan-fried garlic asparagus and garlic bread.  It was such an easy meal to put together as the egg poacher practically does it all for you, the eggs were perfectly poached, they only thing I need to work on is my technique of getting them out the cups as I managed to completely ruin the perfect round eggs scooping them out, oops! (see above picture!) Simple, a lovely healthy meal within about 10 minutes, impressive! 
Since then I’ve been avidly pinning recipes on Pinterest for my next poached egg recipe. Here are a few of my favourites so far…
How do you like your eggs in the morning?
