Soft boiled goose egg with soldiers

The Biggest Soldiers Ever?

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.

So, if you haven’t worked it out, this big egg is a goose egg, sitting in a small coffee cup (well a usual egg cup was not big enough). It was cooked to perfection so that the white was cooked and solid, yet the yolk was runny and creamy.

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.
  • Enjoy!
