Soft-Boiled Egg and New Soldiers

This is the ideal option for an Easter brunch. Both little ones and grown ups love them! When the eggs are done properly, with a runny yolk, nothing is better than dipping your soldiers into them. In this post, you will also have some new soldiers to try…

More than a recipe, this post is an invitation to remember a childhood favourite (my 5 year old can’t get enough of them!).

Sometimes the simplest of recipes make us the happiest!

Happy dipping!

Soft-Boiled Egg

Portion: 1  Prep Time: 7 minutes

Ingredients

1 medium egg at room temperature

salt and pepper

Equipment

utensilios

1 medium saucepan

1 sharp knife

1 long spoon

1 small cup

Instructions

1. Fill a small saucepan with water. Put on the hob over a medium heat and bring to the boil.

2. Once the water is boiling, put the egg into the saucepan using a spoon.

3. As soon as the water comes back to the boil, set the timer for 4 minutes. This guarantees a runny yolk.
