Breakfast can be a battlefield when it comes to pleasing picky eaters, but there's something universally loved about dippy eggs. The soft, runny yolk waiting to be dipped into is a breakfast dream come true, especially for kids. Achieving the perfect dippy egg, with a velvety yolk and firm whites, is an art worth mastering. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the process step by step, providing specific timings and measurements so you can create a breakfast masterpiece that will have your little ones asking for more.
- Fresh eggs
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- Begin by letting your fresh eggs sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. This ensures even cooking.
- While the eggs are adjusting to room temperature, prepare your toasts, butter, or any sides your kids enjoy with dippy eggs.
- Fill a saucepan with water, ensuring there’s enough to cover the eggs completely. Bring it to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
- Carefully lower the eggs into the simmering water one at a time, ensuring they don't crack. Cook the eggs for precisely 4 minutes for soft, runny yolks. For slightly firmer yolks, extend the cooking time to 5-6 minutes.
- Use a slotted spoon to carefully lift the eggs out of the water. Place them into egg cups.
- Gently tap the top of each egg with a knife and remove the cap.
- Season with salt and pepper according to your kids’ preference.
