How to make Soft Boiled Eggs & Buttered Soldiers

The all time favourite brekkie dish !! 
Quick, simple but taste oh so delicious ...yum yum...
A fail-proof recipe...except when you try to get the eggs soft boiled :P It's a hit and miss for me LOL
  1. Place eggs in a pan filled with cold water ( I won't state how long it will take to reach soft boil, 'coz I never got it rite :P But I would say about 5min after the water boiled ? Pls correct me if I'm wrong).
  2. Meanwhile, toast your bread. Spread butter on the still warm toast (if the butter is cold, just rub it on, they will melt into it).
  3. Cut the buttered toast into blocks to make the soldiers.
  4. Crack the eggs (the yolk should still be quite runny), dip the soldiers, and enjoy !
NOTE : I use Maggi soysauce to eat this (Maggi and eggs are match made in heaven me thinks!), of course you can sprinkle some salt & pepper.

    Oh my god! That looks amazing! I love soft-boiled egg (or fried over-easy) with soy sauce and freshly cracked black pepper with toast. :d

    for me the best way to boil perfect soft eggs is with EggPerfect timer. it is an egg-shaped transparent plastic tool that gets submerged into the very same pan with the eggs. as the water starts to boil, a special red area of the timer becomes black. by the level of black one can determine what sort the eggs are: soft, medium or hard. I find the mark between soft and medium to be just perfect. regarding other parts of this delicacy, I absolutely love soft eggs with Helmanns mayonnaise and whole-grain dark bread.
