Boiled egg with broccoli and cheese soldiers

With thanks to Annabel Karmel


Here’s the perfect quick-fix lunch. It’s a fresh take on a boiled egg and soldiers.



1 slice of white bread 

1-2 tsp cream cheese 

15g Gruyere cheese, grated 

3 small stems of Tenderstem broccoli

1 medium British Lion egg


  1. Pre heat the grill to high.
  2. Toast the bread in a toaster then place on a baking sheet. Spread over the cream cheese and sprinkle with cheese. Place until the grill for 3-5 minutes until the cheese has melted. Slice into fingers.
  3. Steam cook the broccoli for 4 minutes, refresh under cold water. Drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Put the egg into a small saucepan. Cover with cold water and a lid. Bring up to the boil. Boil rapidly for 3-4 minutes. Put into an eggcup and carefully slice the top off.
  5. The egg should be runny and ready for dipping!
  6. Serve with the toasted fingers and broccoli stems.
