Directions:
Mix ½ tsp salt into enough water to cover your eggs, and bring the water to a soft boil.
1.
Put your eggs in the water and boil for 4-5 minutes.

When they're done, immediately run them under cold water so they stop cooking.
3. Be toasting your bread and buttering for toast strips.
Serving
1.
To serve, place eggs on an egg stand, shot glass, or anything that will allow the egg to stay upright.
2.
Using the small spoon, repeatedly tap the top of the eggs until an area the size of the spoon is cracked
3.
Dig the spoon across the bottom of the cracked area to remove the top.
4.
Use the spoon to eat from the egg shell - in our family we prefer to use buttered toast strips to dip in the egg and if you have little ones around then you must sing; “Humpty Dumpty Sat On A Wall, Humpty Dumpty Had A Great Fall....etc”.
