  • About

Boiled eggs and toast are top of the breakfast list in most homes, but they are also served in cafés and coffee shops. Usually the eggs are served in egg cups; most homes and cafés have a collection. It doesn’t matter if they don’t match – it’s part of the hygge feeling.


  • 4 large organic eggs, at room temperature


Bring a small-medium pot of water to the boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer. Lower the eggs into the water, stir and start the timer. As soon as the eggs are done, remove and run under cold water. Serve.

5 minutes

Very runny yolk
