1. Bring water to the boil in a pan.
2. Place a layer of cling film in a cup, brush it with oil and drop a fresh egg into it. Twist the ends of the cling film together and knot them to form a little sack.
3. Turn down the heat – the water should only simmer.
4. Place the egg in its sack gently into the water and let it cook for 4 minutes in hot water.
5. Take the sack out of the water with a slotted spoon. Carefully open the cling film and you’re ready to go!

No,No you are advocating the use of poison plastic, clingfilm cannot be recycled and will end up in the seas to poison all your future kids. Use the vinegar method.

This is not poached egg. It is a fried egg, the cling film is the cooking vessel and the water merely provides the heat. But it is still a neat way to fry an egg, I must try it.

I'm so pleased with Pampers Baby Dry! The Sensitive Wipes smell great and the nappies keep my baby dry all night. Not only that, they aren't as bulky, have cute designs and are stretchy. All round - great!
