Dippable Boiled Egg and Soldiers

Eggs are one of my six post-natal superfoods (more on those gems soon) and have a special place in my heart. To me a perfect meal is nutritious but also makes you happy. There’s something playful and easy about a boiled egg that makes even a hard day a little brighter. No matter how old you are, when you plunge golden toast soldiers into a perfectly dippy yolk, it just makes you smile.

Post-Natal Superfood Profile:
Contain Omega-3 (DHA) and Selenium which improve physical brain health and stabilize mood.

Serves 2 Adults & 2 Kids
4 Large Free Range Eggs
1.5 litres water
4 slices of thick bread

Bring the water to a boil in a small pan. Set a timer for 6 minutes for eggs from the fridge or 5 minutes for eggs kept at room temperature. Use a spoon to lower the eggs right to the bottom of the pan then gently tip them off the spoon. Pop your bread in the toaster ready to smother in butter and cut into dipping soldiers.

Once the 6 minutes are up, turn off the heat and remove each egg to an egg cup. If you’re serving immediately leave the shells on and everyone can behead their own at the table. If the eggs are ready but the family isn’t; shell the eggs (break the shell on a flat surface them run under cold water and peel away the shell) and put back in the egg cups. This will stop the yolk cooking further.

Sprinkle the yolk with a little salt and enjoy your morning sunshine dippiness.
