The Australian obsession with brunch has thrust a range of breakfast foods into the culinary spotlight.
But while bread with a smattering of smashed 'avo' is a simple dish to create, perfecting the art of the popular poached egg is a considerably harder task.

The post quickly racked up more than 1,400 likes in a matter of hours, as well as hundreds of comments praising the woman for her clever advice.

The silicone cups are available from Kmart in packs of six for $1.50.
Social media was awash with comments thanking the woman, with one saying: 'I need to do this! Last time I tried poached eggs, they dissolved – I literally lost the eggs! Can't wait to try this.'
'I'm the poached egg maker in my house, but they never look this round or perfectly awesome – thanks for sharing!' another said.
Others voiced relief that they weren't the only people who struggled with the task, writing: 'So it isn't just me – I am honestly so glad to hear this.'
A handful of users shared additional tips for mastering the technique, such as adding a dash of vinegar to the water and stirring continuously to prevent eggs cracking or disintegrating.
