Butter or substitute
First, take a small frying pan with high sides and put in less than half an inch of water in, and put it on high to boil. Then, grease the insides of a poaching cup.
Once that is done, break an egg into the cup.
When the water is boiling, place the cup in the pan and cover it. Turn it to medium and set a timer for seven minutes.
When the timer goes off, remove the cup from the pan. With a fork, hold the egg in the cup and tilt it slightly. If the liquid runs clear and there is no white in it, it is ready. Drain excess water, and then slide the fork around the inner edge of the cup.
Flip onto a plate and enjoy!
Ideally, you want the yolk to run, but you can cook it more if you like.
