Hi

I'm making these today. They're in the oven and I was planning on doing the gooey ones which you cook at a higher temp for less time. If they are soft in the middle are they safe to eat? Or should I do the ones for 3 hours and make them crunchy and therefore fully cooked. I'm using egg whites that were frozen and defrosted overnights if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

I'd eat them but then again i eat funny eggs during pregnancy (always lion stamped).

Buy British (lion marked) eggs and they will be immunised against salmonella.

I had some runny poached eggs for my lunch today. They were yummy!

thanks all! i just wasn't sure because of them being frozen, and also i didn't know if there were any issues with egg whites because what i've always heard has been in the contxt of yolks not whites.

My first pregnancy is avoided runny eggs cos I'd been told not OK, they were one of the first meals I asked for after I gave birth! In pregnancy 2 then I found out about lion marked eggs so I could still have a runny egg grin

glad you enjoyed your poached eggs mrsgembles smile]
