Boiled Eggs in a Kettle

Recommended Posts

I'm starving and I've ran out of food apart from 3 eggs. Had left over from the last time I done boiled eggs in the kettle last week. Heres how to do the perfect boiled egg in the kettle.

1. Use an old net which used to hold oranges or similar fruit.

2. Place the eggs inside the net, into kettle, ensuring they don't touch the element but they are all submerged in the water

3. Close the lid jamming the net inbetween the kettle and the lid. Turn the kettle on, once it starts to boil and click off, start timing for 15 mins.

Boom, nice hard boiled eggs :)

How many times do you need to boil the water?

Put the eggs in, then turn kettle on, once its boils and the kettle goes off, start timing for 15 mins. It comes out with a perfectly cooked boiled egg.

Why aren't you allowed saucepans?

There are no cookers, we only have a microwave or kettle and are not allowed any cooking equipment in our actual rooms other than a microwave or kettle.

That's basically a website of the failing take away services, I don't think there is a single decent one in our area on there.

Anyone done cheese on toast in the toaster?

Actually turns out good!

 

I like my cheese on toast done the good old fashion way, cut slices of a cheese block, under the grill in the oven, bit of Worchester sauce on top! Delicious!

I had some really nice ones from boro, we have far too many takeaways to choose from!

Cant say ive ever tried to boil an egg in a kettle before. That's definitely one for the scrapbooks that. 

 

I only done it as I google how to do it and on the Slimming World diet they are Syn-Free so I aint got to worry how many I eat.

Nah, we're not allowed toasters down here in Portsmouth. In Scotland we are allowed them but only in the cooking area and even then that only has a Microwave and Toaster haha!

I found a better way to do boiled eggs in the Microwave and it worked a treat and is quicker.

  1. Put eggs into a microwave safe container.
  2. Pour "Just" boiled water into the container so it covers all the eggs.
  3. Cook for 6 minutes on MEDIUM setting (Any higher and eggs may explode)
  4. Take out, put in to cold water and peel.
  5. Enjoy

So the kettle takes 15 mins, the microwave takes 6.

I was going to suggest that but you said nothing but a microwave or kettle allowed.

I was going too order a takeaway but after seeing this post it's put me in the mood of buttery eggs in a cup! 

 

I used to love egg in a cup, not had that since I was a kid. Is it the same as me, its basically a soft boiled egg, put into a cup and mashed up?
