Four ways to cook eggs


Cook:5 - 8 MINS
Makes: 4 Boiled Eggs

  • 4 Whole Eggs
  • Bring your eggs to room temperature before boiling. If the eggs are too cold, the shells may crack during cooking.
  • Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water. Place the pan over medium heat.
  • Bring to a gentle simmer, gently stirring the eggs constantly in a clockwise direction. The movement of the water helps to centre the egg yolks.
  • Simmer the eggs for 4 minutes for soft-boiled eggs. For semi-firm yolks and hard whites, simmer for 5 minutes. For hard-boiled eggs, simmer for 8 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the water. Transfer to an egg cup and serve immediately.


Cook:5 Mins
Serves: 2

  • Salt & Pepper
  • 4 Eggs
  • 10g butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Break four eggs into a bowl and add a pinch of salt (and white or black pepper to taste) and 1 tablespoon of milk. Beat lightly with a fork.
  • Heat a small saucepan with a heavy base or a small non-stick pan, add 10 grams of butter and melt on medium heat.
  • Pour in the eggs and reduce heat slightly. Using a flat spoon or fork keep the egg moving and turning in the pan so nothing has contact with the hot surface for more than a few seconds
  • When it begins to firm but is still slightly runny, remove from the heat. The residual heat in the pan will cook the eggs through


Cook:10 Mins 
Serves: 1

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 Eggs
  • In a large saucepan, add water to 5-6 cm. Bring to the boil.
  • Break an egg into a small bowl.
  • Reduce heat until water is barely bubbling, then with a large spoon, gently stir the water in a circular motion to create a whirlpool which will draw the egg into the centre of the pan.
  • Carefully slide the egg into the water.
  • Allow 3½ - 4 minutes for poached eggs with firm whites and soft, runny yolks, and 4-5 minutes for firmer yolks.


Cook: 5 - 10 Mins
Serves: 1

  • 2 eggs
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 5 grams of Butter
  • Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. Add a grind of black or white pepper and a pinch of salt.
  • Heat the entire plan, base and sides. Add 5 grams of butter while pan is on medium/high. Swirl butter around the base and sides of pan. Add the eggs and immediately, with the back of a fork, move the mixture once or twice in a circular motion.
  • Turn heat down and sit only half the pan over the heat. If desired, add an omelette filling, to one side of the omelette. Using a plastic spatula flip the cooked half of the egg over the uncooked side.
  • Put the whole pan back over the heat and cook for a further minute (less if you like the centre soft and a little runny, or more if you like it firm or cooked through).
  • Serve and eat immediately
