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!

Will try this, but it does sound rather like a boiled egg in a cling film shell.

always use FRESH eggs, acidulate the water and spin water by stirring with a spoon

For me runny eggs are disgusting and I am unable to eat them. So the picture you show is a real turnoff. I also do not like the poached eggs you get in hotels which are cooked in water. Use a poaching set and add a little real butter to the small dish before dropping in the egg. Alternatively you can put the egg in a ramekin dish and microwave it; add the butter again to stop it sticking and make sure to pierce the yolk to stop it exploding.

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!
