    Default Poaching in glad wrap - safe/unsafe?

    I did the old cook your egg in glad wrap thing today - OMG THE.BEST.POACHED.EGG.EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRR

    I have never done it because I assumed the glap wrap wasn't great heated adn would transfer toxins into the eggy.

    But it was sooooooooooo bloooooooooody good I'm trying to find out for sure if its unsafe.

    BTW - the egg if anyone is interested was stolen of Jamie Oliver (who sh1ts me no end). Anyway, line cup with gladwrap, bit of oil, salt and pepper, we added mexican tarragon and winter savoury adn the egg. nom, nom nom. bring water to boil and drop egg in for 3min, refresh.

    Most gladwrap is microwave safe so I guess it's technically ok in almost boiling water. I still think it sounds dodgy. But maybe tomorrow I will try it if you reckon it's that good Button.

    Mmmm poached eggs for breakfast. Yummmm.....

    And I LOVE Jamie Oliver thanks very much

    MH - it was great... seriously.. the yolk in the middle, all the white just cooked and the yolk runny and all theherbs had flavoured it.

    It's better then cooking in shell or poaching straight in water - but yeh i reckon it can't be good for you.

    Luvly jubly - have u noticed how fat the old mr. helathly eating jamie has become

    Oh no way I'd do it.
    I add white vinegar to the water when I poach eggs.
    Gregor eggs turn out awesome.
