Follow our step-by-step video for a perfect hard-boiled egg with a slightly soft yolk – great for egg mayonnaise.

Ingredients

  • Egg
  • Saucepan of water
  • Slotted spoon

Method

  • Bring the water to a boil, carefully add in the egg and boil for exactly 7 mins.

  • After the 7 mins, drain the water from your pan, crack your egg around the pan to break up the shell, then pour over cold water and leave for a couple of mins to cool down.

  • When it’s cool, take the egg out of the pan and roll it along the work surface – this makes it really easy to peel.

  • Peel the shell off of the egg with your fingers.

  • Use a knife or an egg slicer to cut the egg up and use it in sandwiches or egg mayonnaise.
