  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices of wholewheat bread


  • The key part to this recipe is boiling the eggs perfectly. Fill a pot with water, and bring it to a boil. Meanwhile, remove the egg from your refrigerator and leave it next to the pot to allow it to warm up to room temperature.
  • When the water is boiling, add the eggs. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the eggs, and whether you prefer soft boiled or hard boiled eggs. I recommend setting a timer to keep track of the time. See notes for the exact timings.
  • After the egg is boiled, remove the shells, and toast your sliced bread. Place the egg on the bread, and use a knife or fork to smash up the egg and spreading it across.
  • Serve the smashed egg on toast immediately while it’s still warm.


How long to cook your eggs:
  • Soft boiled egg: 4 minutes
  • Semi soft boiled egg: 5 minutes
  • Semi hard boiled egg: 7 minutes
  • Hard boiled egg: 8 minutes
  • Be careful not to overcook your eggs. I recommend using an egg boiler, as they ensure a perfect result every time.
  • You can of course serve the smashed egg on other dishes, not just toast. Try serving them on other types of bread, over fried rice, or in salads.
