When I was growing up in England, one of my favorite dishes my mom would make for me was a soft-boiled egg & “soldiers.”  Any of you folks from England will know just what I’m talking about! 

If you haven’t had a soft-boiled egg & soldiers before, the “soldiers” are basically just pieces of toast with butter on them, sliced into little dunking-sized pieces that you dunk into the yolk of the soft-boiled egg.  It’s delicious; really yummy.

But, what to do if you’re on a grain-free diet?  So, here’s a great, new take on an old, great, comfort food.


  • 1 soft-boiled egg
  • Carrot sticks


  • Prepare soft-boiled egg by placing egg in boiling water and boiling for 5 minutes.
  • Place soft-boiled egg in little egg cup, on plate with carrot sticks.
  • Enjoy dipping and dunking your brave little carrot “soldiers” into the creamy, soft-boiled egg.

And remember:  Everyone is English when they’re eating soft-boiled eggs & soldiers!

Happy dunking!
