The upgrade egg and soldiers has been waiting for

Breakfast just not the same without something to dunk into your soft-boiled eggs? Consider your problem solved.

Lucy Markowicz from Durban’s Freedom Café swears by this method for perfectly boiled dippy eggs: place 2 large free-range eggs into a small saucepan and cover with 2.5 cm cold water. Bring the water to a rapid boil, then immediately turn off the heat and allow the eggs to stand for 2 minutes.

That’s it!

As an alternative to crispy toast fingers, she suggests garlicky beans for dunking. Melt 1 tablespoon butter and frying ½ clove of garlic cut into slivers until soft. Add a small handful of fine green beans and flash fry so that they still have a bit of a bite. Serve with the soft-boiled eggs for dipping.

Did you know: Woolies is the only local major retailer to sell only free-range whole eggs. Over 95% of Woolworths’ private label food products that contain egg are also made using free-range eggs. This means the hens that lay your favourite eggs are fed on a vegetarian diet and allowed to roam outdoors during the day with unlimited access to shelter and water. Get your free-range eggs here.
