I used the eggs I bought for basically nothing from the grocery on Loft side of North Road, Durham. Must mention that I did not have quite enough money to pay the huge £1.80 so the lady allowed me to just pay £1.71; I am going to pay them back when I next head in there - you can get 6 mars bars for a pound so that's going to be very soon!
Everyone go there and buy your fruit and veg!
- 2 eggs
- Tin of anchovies (50g)
- Scattering of capers
- 2 pieces of toast
People get very nervous of poaching eggs but really they are quite easy. Bring a pan of water to the boil, take it off the heat and crack one egg in. It will go white quickly and may look like it is falling apart. Don't panic! After about 30 seconds (when the egg has had a chance to solidify a bit) crack in the other egg. I learnt after many years of making bad eggs that you have to let the first one solidify otherwise it just turns into a large congealed mass of junk.
When the eggs are in, pop your toast on.
As soon as the toast is done take the eggs out with a slatted spoon/spatula and let the water drip off. Pop an egg on each piece of toast and then lay the anchovies on top. Scatter the capers and eat whilst it is still hot!
