Soft Boiled Eggs Recipe
Learn how easy it is to make perfect soft-boiled eggs every single time using these easy to follow fool-proof instructions.
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil over high heat.
Gently add the eggs into the boiling water using a large spoon and cook for 5 minutes.
Immediately transfer the eggs after they are done cooking to a container filled with cold water and ice.
Cool the eggs for 2-4 minutes to stop the cooking process.
Peel the eggs under running lukewarm water, slice, and serve.
You can make these up to 1 day ahead of time but are best served immediately.
How to Store:
Keep in cool water in a container for up to 3 days.
How to Reheat:
If you want to serve these warm, add to boiling water in a pot for 2-3 minutes. Peel and serve.
Sometimes eggs smell a
little funky, to cut that smell add some plain distilled vinegar to the boiling water before cooking the eggs.
It does not matter
if you use brown or white eggs when making boiled eggs.
To help peel the
egg, run it under luke-warm water.
