im off to make some poached eggs.
The most exciting thread of all time, literally?
I can confirm that combining the shallow pan / "champagne bubbles" stage of boiling water is the best. Keep the heat down - violently bubbling water will disintegrate the egg. Do not lose heart should you see foam or film on the water, brave warrior, just skim that shit off with a slotted spoon and it'll all be disco.
The eggs probably don't come out as good using those pans.
They come out rubbery and not as good.

2 egg-poaching rings for Christmas (luckily it wasn't the only thing they gave me!)
You stick them in the pan and it contains the egg withnin one part of the pan.
Unfortunately I'm really lazy and find frying or scrambing takes me less effort.
shirley scrambling requires more effort cos you need to beat the eggs and season them and then you need to actually 'scramble' them in the pan, whereas with these 'poaching rings' of yours you could just crack the eggs into the ring/water combination and then forget about them until they're done?
scrambling means spending AGES washing the pan.
2:1 poaching ratio
66.6(repeater of course)% success rate.
All in all, a success.
There were pretty much the most hip-hop eggs i've ever cooked.
I love it when you get them on toast, and you mash up the yolk and they become all runny... and then you add bits of pepper... and salt.. and yuuuuuuum.
im gonna make another
I made another and ate it
Pretty much the most baroque egg i've ever cooked.
not the poached egg fiasco, cos I've got the right pan. (Don't you guys have Salvation Army stores? 50 cents er pence will get you one of those things, eh?)
Not the beard either. I'm afraid you're risking UK deportation (I'm pretty sure there's a little known House of Lords law against that sort of unruly facial hair) ...and that you could find yourself wandering the Texas desert with a sign that sez: Will Tapdance For Booze.
No. What inspires me is the phrase: "it's all disco." I like it, and I intend to steal it.
