- STEP 1
Half-fill the saucepan with cold water. Place on the hob over a high heat and bring to the boil. Gently lower the eggs into the water using a big spoon and turn the heat down to a gentle simmer. Cook the eggs for 5 minutes for a soft yolk or 7 minutes for a hard yolk. Use the timer or clock so you don't overcook them.
- STEP 2
While the eggs are cooking, put the bread on to toast. If you like Marmite, spread it on after the butter. Cut the toast into strips - these are your soldiers. Don't forget to keep an eye on your timer!
- STEP 3
Lift the eggs out of the saucepan using a slotted spoon and serve in your favourite egg cups with the toasted soldiers. Use a teaspoon to bash the top of the egg, then slide the spoon through the shell and take the top off.
