2 slices wholemeal bread
1 teaspoon butter (5g)
salt (optional) and freshly ground black pepper
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil over a medium heat. Gently lower in the eggs into the water and cook for 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, toast the bread and spread with the butter, then cut into soldiers.
Carefully lift the eggs out with a spoon or tongs if you have one and put into eggcups. Crack off the tops and season lightly with a little salt (optional) and pepper to taste. Put on a plate with the toast soldiers alongside to serve.
