The perfect eggs for soldier dipping! Duck eggs from the Welbeck Farm shop. I like to cook mine for 6.5mins for the perfect runny egg, although these are Noels and he prefers 7 minutes. I remember once having a debate with my friend at uni as to whether soldiers should be toasted or not. She loved to dip bread and i loved to dip toast. I explained that they wouldn't be soldiers if they couldn't stand to attention !
