Inspired, I decided to try my hand at making soft boiled eggs. To my dismay, it was impossible for me to get consistent results. I threw in the towel and decided it wasn't meant to be.
After see a tutorial online, I decided to experiment more. To my delight, I was able to get perfectly soft boiled eggs every time.
Let me show you how!
From left to right: 5 minutes | 6.5 minutes | 7 minutes | 8 minutes | 9 minutes
My personal favorite is 6.5 minutes. The white is solid, but the yolk is quite runny. 5 minutes is WAY too soft for me: I don't do the slimy white thing.
TO SUM UP THE PROCESS:
- * Fill your pot with enough water to cover your eggs. Bring it to a full rolling boil over high heat.
- * Place your COLD eggs into the water carefully. Cover, set your timer, and turn the heat down a bit.
- * When the time is up, immediately place your eggs in a bowl of ice water for a minute or two, or run them under cold water. This stops the cooking process.
- * Serve with butter and salt. Mmhmm.
How do you like your boiled eggs?
