The Secret to Amazing Boiled Eggs with Soldiers


Is it weird that I'm 30 and I can't have a soft boiled egg without soldiers? Do I care? No. And no I'm not
going to tell you how to boil an egg, Delia can do that. I'm going to let you in on a little secret (cue everyone saying they do this already)...

After you butter your toast, and before you slice it into soldiers, grind salt and pepper over it.* That is all.

*I only realised how necessary salt and pepper were to this delightful nursery breakfast after watching The Boyfriend struggle to season his egg, having to top up every few mouth-fulls. Giggling with smugness I simply seasoned my toast as he looked on incredulously. It was, I admit, probably the most sensible thing I have ever done.
