Eggs are cheap, versatile and when done well delicious. There also a fantastic source of protein and fats - both vital macro-nutrients in a healthy diet.
Below are some mini-tips on how to master some common ways of cooking eggs:
1. Fried Eggs
Non-crispy: Use butter, cook in a frying pan on a low heat and put a saucepan lid over the egg to make sure there's no runny white (2-3 minutes), serve with avocado and hot sauce.
Crispy: Use sunflower oil, use a rounded bottom dish (a wok is best) so that the egg is submerged in the oil, medium-high heat (1-2 minutes). Serve on a fried rice dish.
2. Poached eggs
For perfect poached eggs with minimum fuss get an egg poacher they're a god send, put a little bit of salted butter in the cup for extra flavour. Throw this bad boy on whatever the f*** you want - versatility.

3. Soft-boiled eggs
This is cause for controversy as many different people have different timings, I like to put boil the eggs for 5 minutes. Best in egg and soldiers, or put in a soy sauce bath and then fridge it to use in salads, noodles or anything you want really.
4. Scrambled eggs
Use butter in a small saucepan, keep it moving, add a little bit of cream, cheese and chives to push it that little bit further.
Let me know how you get on.
