It's important to under-boil the eggs so they aren’t overcooked by the time they’ve had their second frying or baking stage – but they need to be cooked enough for you to peel. Put eggs into a big pan of cold water then turn on the heat and bring the water to the boil. Once boiling, start your timer for 5 minutes – and make sure the water continues boiling and doesn’t drop to a gentle simmer. Once your timer pings cool under cold water to stop the eggs cooking any further.
