The Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs


September 16, 2015

The secret to perfect soft boiled eggs is the timing. For additional doneness in the center, you may cook for extra 30-60 seconds.

  • Prep: 5 mins


2 cold eggs directly from the fridge

Salt and pepper to taste


1Boil a few cups of water ( just enough to cover the eggs) in a small saucepan.

2Lower the heat to low-medium. Add the eggs one at a time.

3Cover with lid. Let it cook for 7 minutes.

4Remove eggs from water.

5Run eggs under cold tap water for 30 to 60 seconds so that the eggs are lukewarm to touch.

Cook Time: 7 Minutes
