Back to the eggs....cracked it...no pun intended.
Forget boiling, its poached in the frying pan from now on, faster and much more controllable. The egg and toast are ready at the same time.

I have a small Milk Pan, I use just to poach my Eggs, just a bit of Water in, and easy to slip out, handier than a Frying Pan, but only ever have one Egg, so maybe need Frying Pan if you eat more.

Someone gave me a couple of 'Poachies' which apparently they got from amazon the other day and they made perfect poached eggs. They are like large teabag pockets (you compost them afterwards) which you don't need to oil as the water gets in them and surrounds the egg. Highly recommend!

Non refrigerated eggs does indeed make a difference to boiling times, found from the fridge requires 4 minutes from a cold water start and timed from the boil.

Never keep Eggs in the Fridge. As I said before, I don't care how my Eggs turn out, I enjoy them anyway. lollaugh

I love Eggs, as I said, but sometimes have a boiled Egg for my Tea at Night, and do notice I suffer for it.

Hmm, I've noticed for some time that I occasionally feel queasy after eating eggs....it's more noticeable if I eat the eggs on their own - such as soft boiled (I just have them with a spoon, no toast) or scrambled.  And I have a definite strong nauseous reaction if I eat a duck egg, they make me feel decidedly ill.

I know some people are allergic to eggs.....I wouldn't say i'm allergic to them, perhaps a bit of an intolerance.

I know what you mean about duck eggs, Sue.  I can eat small ones if hard boiled but can't face them soft, scrambled or in an omelette.  I hope I never get sick on eggs, I love them so much, especially soft poached.

I'll try that again!
