The 6 Minute Egg & A Burnt Grapefruit
I spent most of my life eating eggs that were half scrambled with Olive Oil and eaten with pita bread. And it was fantastic, the first plate to be wiped clean by the family during breakfast.
As with most things time makes change. Now I prefer my eggs boiled with a gooey center (unless it's on rice, fried egg every time). The 6 Minute Egg is my favourite version and it can be enjoyed on toast, with avocado, in an egg cup, or in soup. It is also really easy to impress people with this egg ;)
In this photo above, I also have a grapefruit that has been placed under a broiler to caramelize to tone down the bitterness and is the perfect addition to any breakfast.
6 Minute Egg
Adjust according to the number of eggs you need
Make sure your eggs are at room temp, if not, take them out of the fridge to sit for a little bit .
Grab a pot and fill it with about 4 inches of water.
Place it on the stove on high heat.
Once the water is at a rolling boil, bring the heat down slightly to Medium-High
Gently place the eggs into the water and start a timer for 6 minutes.
Grab a large bowl and fill it with cold water and a few ice cubes.
Once the time is up, transfer the eggs with a slotted spoon to the ice water.
When the eggs have had time to cool and can be handled, carefully crack the shell and remove it.
Add the egg to whatever you are making.
Once you break open the egg, salt it.
Note: Do not break the white part of the egg till you are ready to eat
