    2 Eggs

    1 slice Wholemeal Bread

    1 tsp Butter (5g)

    Sea Salt

    Black Pepper


    Bring a saucepan of water to the boil over a medium heat.

    Gently lower in the eggs into the water and cook for 6 minutes.

    Meanwhile, toast the bread and spread with the butter, then cut into soldiers.

    Carefully lift the eggs out with a spoon or tongs if you have one and put into eggcups.

    Crack off the tops and season lightly with a little salt, if using and pepper to taste.

    Put on a plate with the toast soldiers alongside to serve.
