    I agree. But a dippy egg is a soft boiled egg. That's just how it is.

    I wasn’t naming the thing, I was using the word dippy as an adjective. I was saying that with sausage you need something dippy, which means it needs to be poached or fried. Relax, you can carry on with your childish name for a soft boiled egg to your heart’s content. Read the actual post, not what you assume it to be.

    Oooooooh get you!

    In future I suggest you use 'runny' as the adjective. 'Dippy', to most right-thinking people, means soft boiled.

    See breakfast thread for references to dippy eggs

    There’s no way I’m going near that breakfast thread.

    Had enough of those things the egg sticks to. I bought my girls an egg cooker for Xmas. Mrs R has used it for poached eggs and says it's great but I've always been at work when they've had them so far.

    I think (reluctantly) you might be on to something here... In China I'm keeping my eggs in the fridge (not much space, summer gets very hot). I've not done a poached egg as such, but I'll sometimes add an egg to instant noodles (habit from Korean friends), and have noticed that it maintains it's integrity far better than my uk efforts at poaching did. Despite not being very fresh and being in a pan of noodles.
