How to tell if an egg is fresh
Fill a large glass with water and genntly lower the egg into the water. If it sinks to the bottom it’s fresh. If it floats about in the middle it is still ok but on its way out. But if it bobs up to the surface chuck that egg in the bin fast, it’s gone off.

Souffle Eggs On Toast/Eggy Puff Toast
- 1 egg large and freerange

- tsp butter
- 1 tbsp cheddar cheese optional
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas7 and have a baking tray ready

- In a clean dry bowl (any moisture/grease will inhibit the fluffing process) whisk the egg white until it stands in peeks on its own, takes about 5 minutes by hand
- Toast your slice of bread but don’t make it too brown because it will be going into the oven
- Lightly butter one side of the toast and spoon on a layer of the fluffy egg white keeping within the edges of the slice and make a slight dent in the centre of the fluff and drop in your egg yolk
- Make a slight dent in the centre of the fluff and drop in your egg yolk. Now cover over with the rest of the fluffy egg white making sure that the egg yolk is sealed into the middle of it and can't leak out anywhere

- Pop on the baking tray and into the oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden on top, leave for 12 minutes if you want a harder yolk
