Different ways to poach an egg

There are more ways to skin a cat, or poach an egg. Enjoy Food & Travel co-writer Susanne did it the way shown on this film clip on YouTube. There are, however, other ways that may work equally good. Here are a few other films on the subject that may be of interest to poachers.

Microwave poached eggs

Crack an egg in a ramekin with a little water, cover with cling-film and use your microwave. Easy and less messy, but is it too good to be true?
Use a small bowl and a large spoon 

Crack an egg into a small bowl, release it slowly into simmering water. Use a large spoon to collect the egg whites and then cover with a lid until done

Eggs Benedict - my favourite poached egg
Poach an egg, serve on a toasted English muffin with ham, and Hollandaise sauce. Scrumptious!
