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!

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 do them same as blobbyblobby....bit vinegar in pan. Bring small amount water to simmer, put eggs in, back up to simmer...turn heat off , gently put bit water over eggs with spoon. Wait till whites cooked , take eggs out with slotted spoon, n always have perfect runny yolks. So simple...no Messing with cling film. ��

I would just swirl the water first and drop the eggs in.More natural than using cling film that will contain chemicals
