A boiled egg is the simplest dish on the planet but also the most rewarding. A soft running yolk perfect for soldiers, a firm white but running yolk great for caesar salads or a hard boiled egg for curried egg sandwiches. Whichever you prefer there's a boiled egg for everyone. Always remember the times vary on the size of the egg, below is a rough guide.
Gently lower eggs into a saucepan of simmering water. Cook till your preferred firmness;
Soft Boiled - 3 to 4 mins
Firm White, soft yolk - 4 to 7mins
Hard Boiled - 8mins
Place boiled eggs in cold water once cooked to prevent the formation of the grey ring between the yolk and white. I serve mine with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of cheese.
