Poached Eggs – just the way my grandfather liked them!

Poached eggs


– eggs

– water

– half a lemon

– drizzle of olive oil

– pinch of salt

Boil enough water in a pan to immerse the eggs all the way. Add the eggs one at a time and keep them in the simmering water until they look decently held together – if you prefer your eggs well-done, keep them in a bit longer.  Once they’re done to your liking, transfer them to a plate with a perforated or slotted spoon. Add a couple of squeezes of lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt, et voila!
