“Soft-boiled eggs with toast soldiers for dipping are a classic English breakfast. Here, we've cut the toast into bunnies and serve with dippy eggs for a fun egg-and-toast recipe perfect for Easter brunch or a kid-friendly breakfast.”


    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 pieces whole-wheat bread, toasted
    • Pinch of salt
    • Pinch of ground pepper


  • 1 Place eggs in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes for soft-set yolks.
  • 2 Use 3-inch bunny-shaped cookie cutter(s) to cut the toast into bunnies.
  • 3 Transfer the eggs to egg cups or a bowl. Tap the top of each egg with a spoon to crack the upper part of the shell and remove. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with the bunny toasts and any remaining toast.
  • Equipment: 3-inch bunny-shaped cookie cutter(s)
