  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to a slow boil.

For each egg bring poached, lay a small square of plastic wrap on a table, brush the wrap with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Crack a single egg into the wrap, and close over.

Reduce the boiling water to low.

Gently slip each plastic-wrap egg-package into water. Leave to cook for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on amount of done-ness wanted.

Remove eggs one at a time with a slotted spoon. Slip each out of the plastic-wrap.

Serve immediately.
