How to cook the perfect egg

An egg is a lovely thing… But how do you cook them? I got this tip from my mother once and it works perfectly.

Here’s how to cook the perfect egg

An egg should never be missing from a tasty breakfast. My family love them here at home too. But what is the perfect egg? That of course depends on who’s eating it and how big the egg is. I always buy medium-sized eggs myself, and whether they want it soft, medium or hard, thanks to these timings, cooking is a piece of cake. Rob likes a really soft egg, one that he can dig out with a teaspoon. I therefore use 2 minutes of cooking time for this. I put the egg in a pan of boiling water and let it rise for 2 minutes. For Barney I can go a little longer, around 4 minutes is perfect.
I myself like a medium egg. The yolk doesn’t have to be very hard for me, but not snotty either. Around 6 minutes is perfect! Anne, on the other hand, wants her egg really hard, so for that I leave it for 10 minutes. I actually did an egg once for 15 minutes by accident and our dog Mr Bear was quite happy with that!
