Boiling an egg is such an essential thing to know, but unfortunately far too many people are clueless. Boiled eggs are a real home comfort when you are at uni, not to mention cheap as chips (or eggs..). If you don’t have egg cups, shot glasses work a treat! Follow these achingly simple steps for guaranteed dippiness (or ‘chuckiness’ as my mum says) of your eggs. Getting your eggs right is a fine art – undercooked and they’re too runny and you get what I very maturely call ‘egg bogies’, overcooked and dipping becomes impossible. Perfect for long breakfasts on a lazy Saturday morning or for a Sunday Supper.
Here is the big secret: 5 AND A HALF MINUTES! Straight in to a pan of already-boiling water, making sure the eggs are totally covered (otherwise you could end up with one egg cooked and the other side gooey and gross).
Get a couple of slices of toast. Be generous with your butter. Make sure to use salt on your chucky eggs, it makes such a difference. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk or OJ.
