soft boiled eggs

Categories: Eggs, Posted by Sandy Bergsten





Carefully place eggs into a pan of boiling water with a slotted spoon.

Simmer for exactly six minutes and thirty seconds. Immediately lift the eggs out with a slotted spoon and carefully place in a dish of ice water for 30 seconds.

Tap the end of the egg to find the air bubble and peel away the top.

Serve in an egg cup or ramekin. 

To make ahead- place the cooked eggs in ice water in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Before serving take the eggs out of the ice water and set in a bowl at room temperature. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then lower to a simmer.

Lower the eggs into the boiling water with a slotted spoon. Simmer for 30-40 seconds until the eggs are warmed through. Remove from the boiling water. And place in a dish of room temperature water in the sink.

Tap an end to find the air bubble, then peel away the top of the shell.

Trim off the top and place in an egg cup.

Season with salt and pepper.
