16 poached egg recipes to give you some breakfast inspiration.

And also proof that you can pretty much top any meal with a poached egg.

The perfectly made poached egg is one that many of us strive to achieve for years. That moment when your egg comes out the pan in the perfect white round bundle, followed by the joy when you realise the yolk is runny all the way through, is a triumphant time in any breakfast (or any other meal actually, there’s not much that can’t be improved with a poached egg).

Because of course there are enough times when you’re left with a sad looking disarray of egg whites in water, which is even more upsetting when they were your last eggs.

It’s only natural then when it does go right, or when you give up and go out for brunch, you want to show it off on social media. Here are some perfectly poached eggs on top of stuff.
