4 Large Eggs
coarsely ground salt and pepper
good bread for toasting
Tuck eggs in a saucepan in a single layer and cover with water to your first knuckle. On medium heat bring water just to the boil. (otherwise rubbery eggs!) Cover pan and remove from heat, letting stand 2 minutes by the timer. Remove and serve in egg cups immediately with toast soldiers. Eat with salt and pepper.
