Poached egg recipes

A favoured weekend brunch, poached eggs are an increasingly popular dish of choice when it comes to starting your day off with something a little bit special. Light and low in calories, poached eggs are more commonly associated with eggs benedict and hollandaise sauce, however there’s so much more to them than breakfast.  Why not try them with a roasted haddock fillet, or even a warm lentil salad.
