How to cook eggs
The perfect boiled egg
Fill a small saucepan with enough boiling water to cover an egg and place over a medium heat. Carefully lower a large Golden Irish Egg into the boiling water. Start timing! When cooking a soft-boiled egg, a medium egg will be done in 3 minutes, a large egg in 4 minutes and an extra large in 5 minutes. If you like them a little more firm, simply boil for another minute. Hard-boiled eggs will be ready after 10 minutes. Practice makes perfect!
Fried egg, sunny side up
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Crack a large Golden Irish Egg into the hot oil (gently does it). Spoon a little of the hot oil over the top of the yolk to help it cook.
Dreamy, creamy scrambled egg
Allowing 2 large Golden Irish Eggs per person, break the eggs into a measuring jug, whisk and season. Put some butter into a small non-stick saucepan and melt over a low heat. Pour in the eggs and start stirring gently with a wooden spoon, taking the cooked egg away from the bottom and letting the runny egg take its place until it’s cooked to your liking. Add a splash of cream for pure indulgence!
