BRITISH BLACKTAIL FREE RANGE EGGS

What makes a good egg? One laid by a happy hen. All Waitrose eggs come from free range hens, who have lots of room to roam in grassy paddocks. Our welfare standards mean we’ve held Compassion in World Farming’s Good Egg award since 2008 – and we think you can taste that care when you eat our eggs. Discover more about our eggs, and find recipes and tips to make the most of them. 

Eggs have to be one of the most versatile ingredients of all – they can be poached, fried, boiled, baked, or whisked into a cake or meringue. Here are a few of our favourite egg recipes.

THE PERFECT POACHED EGG

1. Crack your egg onto a saucer, so it’s easier to slide into the pan.  
2. Add a small splash of vinegar to a pan of cold water, around 5cm deep, and bring to a gentle simmer.
3. Use a spoon to swirl the water, making a whirlpool, and gently slide your egg into the centre. Make sure the heat isn’t too fierce – there should just be small bubbles rising. 
4. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the white is just set then gently lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
