Ingredients

  • 2-4 large eggs , at room temperature
  • 4 thin slices soft white bread

For the chorizo soldiers

For the veggie soldiers (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    First, prepare the soldiers. Spread a thin layer of sundried tomato paste on 2 slices of the bread. Put a layer of chorizo on 1 slice, then top with the other slice and press together with a rolling pin. Repeat with the remaining bread. For a vegetarian alternative, use chutney or pesto as your filling.

  • STEP 2

    Put the eggs in a small pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 3 ½ mins.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, heat the grill and toast the chorizo sandwiches. If the layers are starting to separate, press them together again with the rolling pin. Trim off the edges and slice into 1cm-thick soldiers. Serve with the soft-boiled eggs.
