    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 eggs
    • salt & pepper
    • 2 teaspoons butter
    • 1 slice white bread (Home made is best)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a saucepan of water to a boil and slip in the 2 eggs (pre prick them if you have an egg pricker), simmer 4-5 minutes (4 minutes produces a runny egg, 5 minutes firm white runny yolk, 6 minutes or over firm white and firm yolk)
    2. 2
      This of course will vary according to your altitude (The higher you are, the longer eggs will take to cook)
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, toast the bread, cut off the crusts and butter the toast
    4. 4
      cut the bread into 4 fingers.
    5. 5
      When the eggs are done, slip into an egg cup and slice off the top.
    6. 6
      Serve with the Dippies (the toasted bread fingers) on the side with Salt, pepper and pats of butter
    7. 7
      put butter in with the egg and dip your toasts.

      These were very good! A little heavy on the butter for my tastes, but an overall tasty recipe. It is often some feat to time soft-boiled eggs properly, and this recipe had the timing nailed down to a science. My eggs turned out perfectly soft to the minute. This recipe also brought back childhood memories for me - my mother prepared these often for me and my sisters.

      Oh Bergy, thanks for this delightful reminder of my childhood! My (Irish) paternal grandmother used to make this many times for breakfast, and it was such a treat to have this yummy meal again. Okay, I confess, I did not add as much butter as suggested into my eggs ... although I did add some. What a terrific St. Paddy's Day "brunch" -- I cooked up some bacon, too; it was an easy meal to prepare. I must continue to make soft-boiled eggs; I had forgotten how good they are. Thanks again for posting!
