Step 1

Boil your kettle. Place the egg in a lidded saucepan, then very slowly pour boiling water into the pan so that it comes halfway up the side of the eggs.Turn the heat on and continue to boil for another minute, then turn the heat off and put the lid on the pan. Put a timer on for 8 minutes, or 10 minutes for larger eggs. The egg will cook in the residual heat.

 

 

Let your little ones explore dipping their asparagus soldiers in the egg. This is a wonderful tactile supper, best eaten with the fingers! Little spoons can be used to scoop out the eggs, again let your little ones practice with a spoon, and help when needed. Add some toasted bread for left over egg if gluten isn't a problem. Harder boiled eggs can be peeled and sliced and served alongside the asparagus for younger babies.
