How To Make Dippy Eggs and Soldiers

These soft boiled eggs and soldiers are a perfect classic light breakfast for everyone. A soldier is a thin strip of toast, the strips that a slice is cut into are reminiscent of soldiers on parade. 

The toast is sliced in this manner so that it can be dipped into a soft boiled egg that has had the top of its shell removed.
