Coodled Coddled Eggs

The first day begins...

Off to a slightly overcooked start. My very first recipe was coddled eggs.

 Coddling means to heat food in water that is just below the boiling point. Apparently you can coddle other things but eggs are the foods that are usually coddled, as far as I know.

They were a little overcooked. They are supposed to be soft enough so that you can dip your toast batons (called soldiers) into them. The heat was a bit too high. Instead of dipping, we ate them with forks, along with the soldiers and some spicy sausage. And it was pretty good.

And writing this post, my fingers keep on typing coodled. So now I'll call them coodled whenever I overcook them.
