This was my first time poaching eggs, and I wasted a few getting there. I should have watched a couple of videos again beforehand so my expectations would be set appropriately. You'd be surprised how much egg white ends up detached from the rest, even when you do it perfectly.

I also should have planned ahead to make something with the eggs that I couldn't use because their yolks broke. But we had a shopping misfire which led to a whole extra carton of eggs in the house, so this was the best possible time to waste some of them.

Before you're too impressed, the hollandaise is a mix from a packet. I tried making real hollandaise once and will never do that again. The stuff from the packet is ok if you add some salt and lemon juice.
