To cook the perfect soft-boiled egg all that is needed is a saucepan, a slotted spoon, and an egg timer. Don’t cook more than 4 eggs at a time. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer, gently add the eggs, and set the timer. The timer should be set for between 5 minutes and 7 minutes. If one prefers runny yolks then put 5 minutes on the timer. For firmer eggs set the timer to 7 minutes, and if cooking 3 or 4 eggs add a few seconds to the time cooking. Remove the eggs and rinse in cool water for a few seconds. Crack the eggs open with a knife by tapping a small circle around the top of the egg and lifting off the top of the egg. The eggs are ready to serve and eat!
- A soft-boiled egg should be as creamy as it is runny for those perfect “dippy eggs.”
- They are the perfect comfort food to bring you back to childhood or just when you need something rich.
- Set a timer since that yolk will keep cooking if you don’t watch that clock.
“If you’re just cooking one or two eggs, five minutes is perfect for a runny yolk, or cook as long as seven minutes for a more firmly set, but still spoonable, yolk.”
