2 eggs
1 slice wholemeal bread
1 tsp butter (5g)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Bring a saucepan of water to the boil over a medium heat. Gently lower in the eggs into the boiling 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 with a little salt, if using and some freshly ground black pepper. Put on a plate with the toast soldiers alongside to serve.
