I made 4 eggs (at room temperature) and they were all cooked to perfection in the 4 minutes and the DM had 2 and I had 2 and we each had one slice of toast each and half had vegemite and half had marmite and the vote was 1 each as I preferred the vegemite but DM preferred the marmite but we both thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast, thank you French Tart, made for Make My Recipe tag game in the Aussie/Kiwi forum.

I adore this breakfast! My mom is from Northern Ireland and introduced Marmite to me at a very early age and I love it! I used rye toast with marmite to dip in the eggs. Thank you!

I made this for breakfast this morning and loved it! The marmite with the eggs is so good! I didn't have egg cups, so just peeled and cut up the little soldiers and sopped up the egg. Delicious! Thanks! Made for the Virtual Cruise of Scotland!

This is the stuff I grew up on! If you have a British significant other, serve them this in bed for breakfast. You won't believe the gratitude you'll be shown :)

Perfect timing for a perfect soft boiled egg. Sorry I didn't use an egg cup and marmite is a taste you either love or No No - I am a No No. I have some on hand though because some friends LOVE it. Thanks FT for posting the recipe

I love this! Grew up eating Marmite on toast from my British mother!

I have never made soft boiled eggs before. It seems similar to my fav. way of having eggs with the yolk a little firmer, but mashed on top toast. I tried it both with room temp. eggs and eggs right out of the fridge. Neither cracked. I used homemade whole wheat bread and butter. The kids loved dipping the bread and scooping out the whites at the end. Thanks!

Great recipe. I'm an American who married an Englishman, so I had to learn to live with Marmite, and eventually, grew to love it. For all of us non-English/Australian's, the way to break Marmite in gently is to make sure that you butter the bread very generously and spread the Marmite very thinly, and a few slices of good strong cheese go a long way-or spread peanut butter over it. Marmite WILL become addicting if you know how to use it. Thanks for the egg instructions~I can cook about anything but a decent egg~until now!

A wonderful breakfast. Quick, easy and satisfying with a good cup of tea or coffee. I eat this at least evey other week. I have a small addiction to marmite :-) Very good with any type of bread I like white, whole wheat and especially rye.
