    HI    YOU NEED TO GET A SAUCEPAN  PUT ENOUGH WATER IN IT TO COVER THE EGG BY A FEW MILLIMETRES   PUT THE SAUCEPAN WITH THE WATER IN IT ONTO THE HEAT AND BRING TO BOIL PUT A PINCH OF SALT AND A DROP OF VINIGAR IN THE WATER BE CAREFUL OF THE BOILING WATER


    GENTLY PLACE THE EGG IN THE BOILING WATER USE A DESERT SPOON DO NOT DROP YOUR EGG OR IT WILL BREAK AND YOU WILL END UP WITH A POACHED EGG


    YOU NEED TO TIME HOW LONG THE EGG IS IN THE BOILING WATER ALLOW A MINUTE FOR THE WATER TO COME BACK TO THE BOIL THEN GENTLY SIMMER  FOR ABOUT 4MINS FOR THE AVERAGE SIZE EGG IF ITS LARGER THEN GIVE IT A BIT LONGER THIS IS TO GIVE YOU A DIPPER OR SOFT BOILED IF YOU WANT IT HARD BOILED THEN GIVE IT A COUPLE OF  EXTRA MINUTES IN THE SIMMERING WATER .


    EMPTY THE WATER AWAY BE CAREFUL OF BOILING WATER ITS BEST THROUGH A STRAINER SO AS TO CATCH YOUR EGG


    PUT SOME COLD WATER BACH INTO YOUR SAUCEPAN AND PLACE THE EGG BACK IN THE WATER  FOR A FEW SECONDS SO AS TO COOL SLIGHTLY, SO AS NOT TO BURN YOUR FINGERS ,TAP THE EGG ON THE END AND REMOVE THE BROCKEN SHELL JUST AROUND THE TOP, PUT INTO EGG CUP  AND ENJOY WITH YOUR BREAD SOLDIERS.


    HOPE THIS HELPS  TRY YOUR EGG WITH TOMATO SAUCE DIP
