Boiled egg method

Fill a small saucepan with enough water to submerge the egg completely.

Bring the water to the boil.

Carefully slide the egg into the water.

Adjust the heat to a gentle boil (constant small bubbles breaking the surface).

For a set white and runny yolk, boil the egg for six minutes.

For a hard-boiled egg, boil it for nine minutes.

Remove the egg from saucepan and place in cold water to stop the egg cooking further.
