Soft Boiled Egg and Toasted Soldiers

 As a follow up from last week’s post we had lots of requests for the soft boiled egg recipe, aka “egg and soldiers”.

Boil your egg for about half the time of a hard boiled egg. This time will vary per altitude, in Utah we wait til the water gets to a rolling boil, add egg (slowly with a spoon so it doesn’t crack) and let it cook for 4 mins. Next, remove the egg and place in egg cup to slightly cool. With a normal knife, slice off the top of your egg, garnish with S+P and go to town dipping your “soldiers” (strips of buttered toast) in the egg.

Will you be adventurous and give it a try?
