Ingredients


2 eggs (room temperature)
Salt and pepper

Method

  • Gently place eggs into a small saucepan of lukewarm water.
  • Heat on a high heat until water starts to boil, reduce heat to medium low.
  • Start timing once water has boiled. Allow eggs to simmer for 3 minutes. 
  • Remove from water and place in an egg cup and slice off top.
  • Serve with strips of toast and salt and pepper.

Tip

  • If egg is refrigerated place in cold water (not lukewarm water) and increase cooking time to 5 minutes.  
  • Boiled eggs can keep in the refrigerator unpeeled for a few days. Don’t forget to mark the egg as boiled.
