Boiled Egg and Marmite Soldiers

By the wlr team

A quick and simple breakfast - boiled eggs really fill you up. Try these tasty marmite soldiers for a new twist to an old favourite. I make mine from Nimble bread - as it toasts really crunchy and is just the right size for dipping!

    per serving


  • 2 slices Nimble bread
  • 1 tsp Marmite
  • 200ml fresh orange juice
  • 1 large egg


  1. Place eggs in a small pan. Cover with at least 2.5cm (1") of cold water, add a pinch of salt and place the pan on a high heat. When the water is almost boiling, gently stir the eggs and set a kitchen timer for one of the timings below:

    3 minutes for really soft boiled yolk and set white
    4 minutes for slightly set yolk and set white
    5 minutes for firmer yolk and white
    6 minutes for hard boiled with slightly soft yolk
    7 minutes for firmly hard boiled
  2. Reduce heat slightly to keep water bubbling but not fast boiling and stir the eggs once more.
  3. Toast the bread, spread with Marmite and cut into strips (soldiers!)
  4. Once cooking time is complete, remove the eggs from the pan with a slotted spoon, place into egg cups and serve immediately with Marmite soldiers.

To prevent eggs cracking, make a small pin prick in the shell at the rounded end to allow the steam to escape.
