- A decent saucepan with a lid (we have this set)

- Salt & pepper (I like to use Cornish Sea Salt flakes)
- Boiling water
How to cook Syn Free Soft Boiled Eggs
I used large eggs so timings will vary slightly depending on the size – smaller eggs won’t take as long, and extra large eggs will take longer.
Step 1 – How to cook Syn Free Soft Boiled Eggs
Bring a pan of water to the boil, put the eggs in gently as you don’t want to crack them! It’s easier if you put them on a slotted spoon and lower them in.
Turn the heat down slightly so they are on a fast simmer. Set your timer for 6 minutes!
Step 2 – How to cook Syn Free Soft Boiled Eggs
While the eggs are cooking, fill a bowl with ice and water – set to one side.
Step 3 – How to cook Syn Free Soft Boiled Eggs
Once the 6 minutes are up, use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the pan and plunge them into the bowl of iced water. Leave them in the iced water for 30-40 seconds.
Step 4 – How to cook Syn Free Soft Boiled Eggs
Then peel the eggs carefully, making sure to keep dipping them in the water. It will help make the Syn free soft boiled eggs easier to peel.
And et voila!! The perfect Syn free soft boiled eggs ready to enjoy them however you like.
You could have them on top of our Syn Free Ramen Noodle Bowls…
Or you could do as we do and have them with some sausages instead! We like to save our HEB, so sausages are a nice alternative.
