How to boil an egg

Dippy or hard boiled, with our guide to boiling tasty eggs you will never have to worry about timings again

Ingredients

• Skea Eggs

Whether you prefer your eggs dippy or hard-boiled, we’ve got a few handy tips:

Don’t boil eggs straight from the fridge, as they might crack when cold. Consider using a kitchen timer

Always simmer water gently

Use a small pan – otherwise the eggs might knock together and crack during cooking.

Method

Fill a small saucepan with enough water to cover the eggs by about 1cm.   Bring the water to a boil.  Carefully lower your room temperature eggs into the water using a tablespoon.  How long to boil eggs for (timings are based on our large eggs, reduce by 30 seconds for medium eggs):

5 minutes – to dip into set white and runny yolks with buttery toast
6 minutes – Enjoy a runny yolk, a little less oozy.
7 minutes – Your eggs will be almost set but still deliciously sticky. Great for a simple salad.
8 minutes – Softly set, now the eggs will be perfect for making scotch eggs.
9 minutes – the perfect hard boiled egg

As soon as your eggs are ready, scoop them out and run them under cold water to stop them cooking any further. Leave hard-boiled eggs in cold water for two minutes longer.
