  1. Cut the baguette into pieces 6cm in length. Hollow out the center by pushing down on the inside of the bread.

  2. Place plastic wrap over a bowl. Brush the plastic wrap with the vegetable oil. Poor in an egg. Twist and knot the plastic wrap to make a parcel. Repeat this 5 times. Cook the eggs in boiling water for 4 minutes, then add one into each piece of bread.
