Soft Boiled Eggs and Toast Soldiers

Sometimes there is nothing more comforting than  Nice Soft Boiled Eggs with Toast soldiers. My children recently took a liking to soft boiled eggs after having them at a friends house. I remembered how my mom used to serve them with wholemeal toast soldiers and I always asked for more. So I have a new after school snack for the kids.

Soft Boiled Eggs – obviously should not be overcooked. To get that lovely texture that you can scoop out with a spoon straight from the shell or dunk your toast in : make sure the eggs do not boil in water. The perfect soft boiled egg for many, consists of a slightly runny yolk and a custardy white. Serve in egg cups or – my kids like these tiny bowls.
