The last of the eggs in ‘Gizzi’s Kitchen Magic’! I haven’t had a boiled egg with soldiers in ages! I always make them for salads but I’ve never made them with a recipe so always end up boiling them for about 10 minutes and getting this horrible black ring around the yolk after cooling it. So this is the last of the basic egg recipes!!
Firstly I brought a pan of salted water to the boil. Yes, you’re probably thinking the same as me and have never boiled an egg in salted water before either but supposedly eggs shells are quite porous so the salt water will season the egg whilst cooking. When it reaches the boil slowly slip the eggs in using a spoon and make sure they are fully submerged in water. It says to use 2 eggs per person. Then boil them for no more and no less than 4 minutes if you want a runny yolk. If you are going to serve them in an egg cup, serve them with the round bottom of the egg facing upwards, this is where the yolk is!
I under cooked my white a little bit which I think was due to the fact my eggs weren’t fully submerged in water….. but the yolks were absolutely delicious. They were so creamy and I ate them with a small slice of plain toast soldiers and a small slice of soldiers with garlic and herb cream cheese. I think Yolks and this cream cheese became best friends today. It was amazing.
