Who doesn’t love a good old fashion soft boiled egg and some buttered toast. Here’s a top recipe, that’s easy and delicious!

Use a small saucepan. Place eggs in the pan, and fill with enough cold water to cover the eggs by about 1/2 inch (1cm).

Bring to a boil on high heat. When the water boils, reduce the heat to low so that you have a gentle simmer.

Cook until done. Using a timer, follow the timing below to get the results you desire:

2 minutes:
very soft yolk and egg white
3 minutes:
the white is just set, and the yolk is just starting to thicken
4 minutes:
the white and yolk are set, with the center of the yolk still creamy

Note: if your eggs are very fresh (1-4 days old), add an additional 30 seconds to the above times.
