Soft-Boiled Eggs
Place the eggs in a saucepan with enough room for the eggs to move and enough cold water to cover them by a couple of centimetres.
Put the saucepan on a hotplate and turn the hotplate on high. Once the water is boiling, start timing the eggs. Cook for three minutes.
After three minutes, remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and place in egg cups.
Slice the tops off the eggs and serve with teaspoon, toast fingers and salt and pepper.
