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:
very soft yolk and egg white
the white is just set, and the yolk is just starting to thicken
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.
