Have You Ever Tried A Soft Boiled Egg?
I’m not going to lie. I keep seeing soft boiled egg on instagram and pinterest. I think we should all be eating them with our avocado toast now. Of course, I had to try them. Guess what? They’re delicious and they’re so very easy to make. I love eggs over easy so these are a great alternative, and less messy than fried eggs.
All you have to do is boil a pot of water that’s deep enough to cover your eggs. Once the water boils, use a spoon to lower your eggs into the water gently. Set a timer for 7 minutes and wait, or check your e-mail or text messages. When your time is up turn off the heat and drain your eggs, then cool them with running water or ice. You want to cool them quickly so they don’t keep cooking.
And then – peel them and enjoy! It’s really that easy. I especially love mine with a light sprinkle of salt and a side of toast!
I also think these would be delicious to substitute for hard boiled eggs in a salad, or for a fried egg on a burger or sandwich. Yummy. I have to go boil some eggs now.
