Boiled egg dippers


The salt keeps the whites from seeping out of the shells should the eggs break. Once the eggs are added, keep the water at a gentle boil.

Nothing beats a runny egg yolk for a deliciously dip-able breakfast or brunch. Roasted or steamed veggies or rolled lean deli meat all make fantastic, filling dippers.
  • Ingredients
  • Method


4 or 8 large eggs


  1. Fill a medium or large saucepan (depending on how many eggs you are cooking) ¾ full with water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. With a spoon, lower each egg into the water and reduce the heat slightly so water is at a gentle boil. Cook 5–6 minutes for a soft egg and 7–8 minutes for a medium soft egg.
  3. Lift eggs out of the water with the spoon and place in egg cups or bowls. Serve with your choices of dippers.
