Eggsquisite soldier toast…

Perfect boiled eggs

I love having a long drawn out brekky on a Sunday morning and  I had a nostalgic moment this morning and had a craving for soldier or dippy toast.  It brought smiles to hubby and the teenage boys. Brekky can be ruined if you get your timing wrong, the eggs need to be runny so the soldiers can soak up the flavour of the eggs and if you are a vegemite fan I love smearing it over the toast before dipping into the egg. Here is a recipe for boiled eggs, from just set to hard boiled. Enjoy!

Perfect boiled egg

Remove 4 eggs from the fridge and allow them to reach room temperature. Fill a medium saucepan with cold water. Bring the water to the boil over high heat. When it has reached boiling point, reduce heat. After a minute, use a spoon to gently lower the eggs into the water. Boil eggs gently for 3 minutes for very soft yolks and barely-set whites, 4 minutes for runny yolks and just-set whites, 5 minutes for just-set yolks and set whites, and 8–10 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. Serves 4.
