TikTok Star Georgie Halfacree Shares Hack To Make Perfect Poached Eggs
Sharing the nifty hack with her followers, Londoner Georgie posted a short tutorial showing exactly what we need to be doing to make sure our eggs keep their shape.
Firstly, you need to fill a pan with water and put it on a low to medium heat, bringing it to a gentle simmer.
Then grab a sheet of cling film and cut out a square, placing it over a ramekin or a small dish. Lather the cling film in olive oil and then crack the egg into the middle.
Tie it into a little parcel, making sure all of the air has been squeezed out and the egg is securely wrapped up.
Then simply drop it into the boiling water and wait three minutes. Et voila, there you have it - your perfect poached egg.
Showing off her dish, Georgie said: "That for me is the perfect poached egg. No guys, you don't need to be scared of poached eggs anymore - look how beautiful that is."
Bu once you've mastered this, how about moving onto one of the most famous egg dishes of them all - McDonald's Sausage and Egg McMuffin?
With billions now cooped up in their homes during lockdown, the fast-food giant shared a recipe card, which includes ingredients you're more than likely to have lying around.
That said, if you can't get hold of a few things at the moment, there's no reason why you can't skip a layer or two if you need to - or double up on the bits you like most.

American Cheese Slice - Assemble your McMuffin by layering the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese.
Potato - To make a hash brown, grate the potato into a bowl. Mix in an egg then season with salt and pepper. Heat a glug of oil in a pan then add a spoonful of the mix. Flatten and cook until golden brown on both sides.
