Sometimes I just feel like a simple meal for dinner or brekky, and this is my go to feel good food. It took me a while to perfect, as I cannot stand an undercooked or overcooked egg. The 6.5 minutes is the key, as is the pinch of salt which helps the water to boil faster.

Ingredients (serves 1 | makes 1 serve)

  • 2 eggs, free range and size large or bigger :)
  • 2 pinches Murray Valley Pink Salt, or iodised table salt
  • 1 Slice toast with yummy fresh butter


  1. Boil enough water to cover eggs, adding 1 pinch of salt. Once water is boiled put in the two eggs. Time the cooking for 6.5 minutes. I give a stir to the water every couple of minutes to minimise the risk of the shells cracking
  2. Cook toast whilst eggs are boiling, I like a high fibre white bread.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

Notes... Look around your local area and see if you can buy free range, farm fresh eggs...
