How do I make the perfect boiled egg?

Boiled eggs are great for eating at breakfast lunch or dinner, they go with a whole host of foods from steak to salad and can be eaten simply with toast for breakfast.

Eggs are a fantastic source of iodine, protein and vitamins and are really natural, boiling in the shell is one of the healthiest ways to eat an egg.

We have tried an tested a lot of eggs at different times and weights, and the clear winner for us is a 50 gram egg cooked at a rolling boil for 5 minutes and 4 seconds. If you go a few seconds more or less that wont make too much of a difference, also don't worry about weighing the egg also, if you buy medium eggs they will likely be weighed at 50 to 60 g  if you buy large just cook for another 10 seconds.
