Boiled eggs


Whether it’s toasted soldiers dunked into runny golden yolks or hard-boiled eggs used in
sandwiches, salads or curries, boiled eggs are the ultimate snackable food.

Boiling eggs is also a good bet if you’re looking for a healthier cooking option, as there's
no need for oil or butter.


How to boil eggs

Learn how to make the perfect boiled egg, whether you prefer soft, medium or hard-boiled yolks.


To get your eggs spot-on, you need to keep an eye on timings.

Lower room temperature eggs into a small pan of boiling water, then cook as follows:

For soft-boiled /runny yolks -  5 minutes

For medium soft (more firmly set but spoonable) -  7 minutes

For hard boiled - 9 minutes


Avoid egg whites going grey by not cooking them for too long or at too
high a temperature. Still perfectly edible, the grey of the egg is caused by
a reaction between the iron in the egg yolks and sulphur in the whites.
