Prep Time 2 minutes Cook Time 7-10 minutes Serving Yield 2 servings Here's a secret: perfect soft-boiled eggs take just minutes to make, and the payoff is stunning. In fact, the rich golden yolks are the undeniable stars of this dish. Cooked to perfection—still runny, but just custardy and "dippy" enough to be swept up by buttery, crusty toast soldiers. Morning person or not, you (and everyone else in the house) will want to fall in line for this one. By: Foodness Gracious Ingredients 2 Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs 3 slices artisan crusty sourdough or any crusty loaf Unsalted butter Salt and freshly ground black pepper Directions Step 1 Bring a pot of water to a boil and place the eggs into the water. Boil the eggs for 5 minutes. Step 2 While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread and then generously butter each slice. Cut the bread into strips about 1 inch thick. Step 3 Once they're ready, slice off the top of each egg and season with salt and pepper. Step 4 Dip the toasted soldiers into the soft yolk and enjoy.

There is a good chance they will crack. Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. 1 Reply [email protected] June 14, 2019 That's right, Jim. Thanks for clarifying! It's best to put the eggs in the water and then bring them to a boil while they're already submerged so that they don't crack. Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch.

Garry King October 10, 2018 Another great way to get consistently perfect boiled eggs. is to steam them. Get a pot with a inch or two of water to the boil, put in the eggs cold from the fridge. Cover an steam for 6 minutes. Put the pot in the sink and run cold water into it for 30 seconds. Runny golden perfection, every time.

Eggbert October 06, 2018 How do you slice off the top without breaking the rest? Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. 2 Replies a garry king October 10, 2018 I use a similar method to Taylors, using just the spoon, but I'e read that Rosle's egg topper does a very good job. My drawers just can't handle one more gadget! Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. 1 Reply [email protected] October 11, 2018 We hear you, Garry! With all the gadgets out there, we're running out of kitchen space! Glad to hear that the spoon method has worked well for you. Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. [email protected] October 08, 2018 Hey Eggbert (love the name!), great question. Once the egg is in its cup, we recommend giving the top a few firm taps with a spoon to crack open the shell. Once you've cracked the top, use a small knife to gently cut around the egg and pull off the top. If you want a really clean cut, you might be able to find an egg-topper (a tool made specifically for topping soft-boiled eggs) at your local kitchen supply store - but for most people, the spoon and knife work just fine!
