Dippy Eggs and Soldiers

Dippy Eggs and Toast Soldiers

I’ve tried since we got here (a total of 4 times so far) to make dippy eggs and soldiers (basically soft-boiled eggs and toast).  So far, I’ve managed to overcook them to hard boiled every time.  I’m trying again this morning, but does anyone have any ideas for me?  Here’s what I do:

Take the eggs out of the fridge
Fill a pan with water to cover
Add the eggs
Put it on the heat
Wait for it to boil
Turn the burner off and wait
