How long should a boiled egg be done for to be perfect for boiled egg + soldiers. Ta

3 mins for soft and 5 mins for hard boiled

3.5 minutes. If it looks a bit too runny when you lop the top off just put it back on for a minute. The only thing I can cook properly.

And the water needs to be boiling well before you put the egg in.

Depends how big the egg is too! (also whether it has been in fridge or not). I would say 3.5 for a small egg, 4 mins for a large. Bit longer if you keep them in the fridge.
