  • 4 pieces clingfilm
  • 4 standard cups
  • 1 large saucepan


  • 8 small eggs free range


  • Lightly oil a teacup, and press in a piece of clingfilm/saran wrap so it touches the bottom of the cup and overhangs the outside.
  • Carefully crack two small free range eggs into each cup.
  • You can add a little tabasco, herbs, salt and pepper etc. to flavour your eggs at this stage. Just add your flavours to your pouch. One sage leaf works amazingly.
  • Gently gather the cling film sides up and tie a knot. You will have a eggs in a little pouch in effect.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining eggs.
  • Bring a pan of water to a gentle simmer and add the pouches to the pan.
  • Simmer away for 8 minutes. Lift one pouch out and squeeze to see if its cooked. The white should be set but the yolks will remain runny.
