How do you like your eggs in the morning? Here’s how to make the perfect poached, fried, boiled and scrambled eggs.

Eggs, in all their sunshine yellow glory, are the humble hero when it comes to a quick-fix breakfast, lunch or dinner. From a runny boiled egg perfect with toast soldiers (our Sunday night go-to), to a speedy scrambled eggs breakfast, there is literally an egg recipe for every time of day.

Packed with protein and endlessly versatile, it’s worth mastering the basics before trying your hand at an eggs hollandaise or a showstopping shakshouka. Here’s your one-stop-shop for cooking every type of egg:
