Yummy, making these for dinner now 🙂

Hubby loves these! I can’t work out how to do soft boiled and I think I might need to add more seasoning to the meat next time. Mine always seem to split open when I’m cooking them too, but they’re a great occasional meal. A bit fiddly for day to day dinner. 🙂

Hmm…. you know I freeze everything, but I do wonder how the egg would go frozen, I’ve never tried it myself so I am a little unsure, sorry I can’t give you a proper answer Rebecca.
