How to make a Perfect Poached Egg

Forget all that swirly water, with or without salt or vinegar.
Buy a Poachpod : ... ods-108054" onclick=";return false;

Grease it with a little bit of butter, break an egg into it, bung it in about an inch of lightly boiling water (just enough so that the pod can't sink) , bung a lid on the pan and leave for about 7 minutes.
Just enough time to make and butter some nice......

Perfect !

Ok, everyone loves Yorkshire Puds, and everyone has their own recipe.
I've been making them for years, mainly by edumacated guesswork, but lately I've been looking for a foolproof, easy to remember recipe.
I reckon this might just be it.

To my mind it looks a bit too milky, and not quite eggy enough, but I've tested it a few times now, and it definitely works

Gus's Perfect Yorkshire Pudding Recipe :

Take a cup, or mug, and measure exactly the same quantity of each :
(1/2 a cup will take 2-3 eggs and make 6-8 individual puds)
Plain Flour
Whole Milk

Bung in a bowl, season with a good pinch of salt and black pepper
Whisk together until smooth
Bung in the fridge for a couple of hours.

When your roast is ready to come out of the oven, whack the dial up to 200C and bung in your Yorkshire pudding tins, liberally coated in Olive Oil, Lard or Goose Fat and leave them for a good 10 minutes until the fat is smoking hot.
Give the batter a bit of a stir, just to make sure it hasn't seperated out, then pour into the tins - do not more than 1/2 fill each one.
Cook for 15 mins.
Job Done !

If you turn the oven off when they are done, then they won't brown much more, but will crisp up a bit - this is optional.
You can also add herbs and stuff appropriate to whatever you are having then with.
Sage and Thyme work with Chicken or Pork, Rosemary works with Lamb, Mustard Powder with Beef - just add it to the batter mix.
