The best soft boiled egg I have ever had! Big, creamy and delicious, and yes it did require big soldiers. I had to toast more soldiers as the yolk was soooo big the first slice of toast mopped up only a fraction of the yolk.
Here is how to soft boil a goose egg:
- Add water to a large pan (sufficient size pan, so that when the water is added it just covers the goose egg)
- Before adding the goose egg, get the water to a rolling boil;
- In the meantime put some slices of bread in the toaster;
- Once the water is boiling, gently add the egg to the water and set the timer for 6 minutes;
- At the end of 6 minutes remove the goose egg from the boiling water and place in a tea cup or small coffee cup;
- With a knife slice the top of the egg off;
- Hopefully a runny yolk and perfectly cooked white ready for eating!
- Serve with the toast buttered (when warm) and cut into strips ready for dunking into the egg.
