Whether you are a breakfast person or not (I am not) there are occasions where a hearty breakfast is required! This is one of those, and would suit a lazy Sunday morning with friends. It is divine, could do double duty as lunch no worries and all you have to do is get a bit organised then let your Thermo cooker do the rest!

Of course poaching eggs is a bit of an art form, so make sure the skilled egg poacher in your household does that job.

A few tips for poaching are;

1. Use a dash of vinegar as well as a pinch of salt in the poaching water as this helps the white stick together a bit better.

2. Use plenty of water but don't go with a large pot, best a smaller circumference and deeper.

3. Only attempt a couple of eggs at a time and don't crack them into the pot directly, but into a small bowl first.

4. Bring the water to the boil, then reduce the heat so it is just simmering before adding the eggs.

5. Stir the water to create a whirlpool as you add the eggs, this will also help bring the white together to create a nice neat egg.

6. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked eggs onto a paper towel to drain. Nothing worse than adding a slosh of egg water to your Curried Lentils!

There you go kids. Expert egg poaching at your service.
