Soft Boiled Eggs - Bantam Eggs (Miniatures)

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Zannah

This is basic but a useful reference for these delicious miniature eggs! I was suprised that I could not find directions on how to boil these to perfection, so I worked it out with trial-and-error. Here is the result... perfectly runny yolk, solid albumen!

Thanks Zannah! This gave us perfect bantam eggs. Can we assume that we just increase the time for more than 2 eggs??

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 bantam eggs (from refrigerator)
  • water
  • toast


  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil - enough water to cover the eggs.
  2. When it has reached a rolling boil, gently drop the eggs in using a tablespoon.
  3. Now, wait for the water to come back to a rolling boil - approximately 45 seconds!
  4. Keep the water going for exactly 2 minutes 30 seconds. Remove the eggs.
  5. Serve these eggs with toast soldiers and a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper - yum!
