Egg and Soldiers

Soft boiled egg and hot buttered soldiers is the perfect wake up call.

Serves: 1
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes


- 1 large egg
- 2 slices of white or wholemeal bread
- Butter or sunflower spread


Fill a small saucepan with cold water.

Gently lower the egg into the pan with a large serving spoon. Bring to the boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 4 minutes for a medium yolk, and 5 minutes for a firm yolk.

While the egg is cooking, pop the bread in the toaster. Once it’s toasted, spread with butter or sunflower spread and cut into soldiers.

Once the egg has simmered for the required time, carefully lift out of the pan with a serving spoon. Arrange the soldiers on the plate with the egg.
