List of ingredients for How to cook the perfect boiled egg


* 2 Large Lion Quality eggs
* Water for boiling
* Pinch of salt
* 1 slice of buttered toast cut into soldiers to serve (optional)

===Method===
* Place egg in a small pan. Cover the egg with at least 2.5cm (1") of cold water, add a pinch of salt and place the pan on a high heat.
* When the water is almost boiling, set a kitchen timer for one of the timings below:
'''3 minutes for really soft boiled yolk and set white'''
'''4 minutes for slightly set yolk and set white'''
'''5 minutes for firmer yolk and white'''
'''6 minutes for hard boiled with a firm yolk'''
'''7 minutes for firmly hard boiled'''
Reduce heat slightly to keep water bubbling but not fast boiling and stir the egg once more.
Once the cooking time has expired, remove the egg from the pan with slotted spoon, place into egg cup and serve immediately with hot buttered toast soldiers.
