Step 1: You will need
- small saucepan
- large spoon with holes
- egg cup
Step 2: Cook the egg
There are different ways of cooking soft boiled eggs, but this is the simplest. Use the large spoon to gently lower the egg into the cold water. Then bring the water to the boil. When the water boils, leave the egg for a further 3 minutes.
Step 3: Toasted Soldiers
But while the egg is cooking you can toast the bread.
When done, remove the toast and spread a little butter on one side. Then slice into strips about 2 centimetres wide, you should be able to get 4 strips from one slice of toast. Your soldiers are now ready for action.
Step 4: Remove the egg from the boil
As soon as the 3 minutes are up, place the boiled egg into an egg cup.
Slice off the top immediately with a knife - if you don't the egg will continue to cook, and the yolk will harden.
Step 5: Marshall your forces
Put the soldiers alongside, ready for dipping.
