Dippy eggs are one of our favourite Friday night go to meals – can’t be bothered cooking – it needs to be easy meals.  Whenever I ask the kids what they’d like to for dinner my son will say, 100% of the time ‘dippy eggs!’.  He loves them, and I don’t blame him cause I thought they were pretty cool as a kid too.

Serve it with some sweet potato fries, or even smashed avo on toast…or just with plain old toast (just try and get some that are additive free, like a yummy sourdough).  Remember to use real butter over marg and you’ll have a perfect additive free dinner (or perhaps breakfast?).

The trick is to have the water boiling before putting in the eggs, then only cook for 4.5 minutes based on cooking 4 large size eggs. This will give you the perfect runny eggs so cut the top off quickly before it cooks more in its own heat.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Thanks
