Choo Choo – Here comes the Breakfast Eggspress

Eggs can sometimes be a difficult one to fancy up and convince a non-liker to eat. So here is a child friendly approach I reckon will even get the muscleiest of men to eat an egg! They arrive on a train … need I say more!

 Ingredients (serves 4)

4 Eggs

1/2 Baguette (full length)

Salt & pepper for seasoning

Butter for the bread (our favourite part because it melts under the egg!!)


  1. Bring a pot of water to the boil.
  2. Add a pinch of salt.
  3. Crack the 4 eggs in appropriately spaced and lower the temperature to low.
  4. Remove the eggs when you can see a white form over the yellow.
  5. Cut a full baguette in half, scoop out 4 spaces in the bread-stick and butter.
  6. Place each egg into one of the spaces.
  7. Place in the middle of the breakfast table and tear apart to enjoy.

Note: you can also place the scooped out bread on top of each egg buttered with added herbs to dress it up.
