Poached egg on toast
Cost = 24p approx (with 1 egg, 1 toast)
Why eat proclaimed breakfast meals just for breakfast? I’m not very well, and all I wanted to eat today was a poached egg on toast. They are cheap, quick and good for you. I ate it at 4pm. Shoot me. Here is how:
1 or 2 eggs (greediness dependant)
1 or 2 slices of bread
1 tsp oil
butter for toast
seasoning
cling film (only if your using this method. If you’re not then, then just crack the egg in simmering swirling water instead. I just prefer the below method, because it works everytime!)
Boil the kettle.In a cup, cover the inside with clingfilm.Rub the oil and salt and pepper onto the clingfilm inside the cup.Crack the egg in, and pull out using the top of the cling film, then twist it into a tight sack so the egg is fully and securely encased in the cling film. Put the water in a sauce pan over a medium heat. When the water is just simmering (you may have to adjust the heat to keep the water at a simmer, which is light bubbles rising to the surface) plop the egg in, and leave for about 4 1/2 - 5 minutes.Meanwhile, toast your bread and butter.Take out the egg, and take off the clingfilm, serve on the toast.Flu friendly!

Why eat proclaimed breakfast meals just for breakfast? I’m not very well, and all I wanted to eat today was a poached egg on toast. They are cheap, quick and good for you. I ate it at 4pm. Shoot me. Here is how:

  • 1 or 2 eggs (greediness dependant)

  • butter for toast
  • seasoning
  • cling film (only if your using this method. If you’re not then, then just crack the egg in simmering swirling water instead. I just prefer the below method, because it works everytime!)

Boil the kettle.
In a cup, cover the inside with clingfilm.
Rub the oil and salt and pepper onto the clingfilm inside the cup.
Crack the egg in, and pull out using the top of the cling film, then twist it into a tight sack so the egg is fully and securely encased in the cling film.
Put the water in a sauce pan over a medium heat. When the water is just simmering (you may have to adjust the heat to keep the water at a simmer, which is light bubbles rising to the surface) plop the egg in, and leave for about 4 1/2 - 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, toast your bread and butter.
Take out the egg, and take off the clingfilm, serve on the toast.
