the Soft Boiled Challenge

Try something different for breakfast, and get your English on at the same time. For some reason I associate spring with soft-boiled eggs for breakfast and I’m sure its some latent ‘British’ thing. But how do you get the perfect soft boiled egg? The same way you get to Carnegie Hall… practice, practice, practice. Yeah, it all sounds quite simple, put an egg into water with some heat, but with all the conflicting advice on how to soft boil eggs out there I firmly commit to adding my voice to the chorus… here’s what works for me….

So, without further ado…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 large chicken eggs
  • 1 pot
  • Water

Bring a pot of water to a boil.

With a large spoon place eggs in pot of boiling water.

Set a timer for 5 minutes.

While your egg is cooking prepare your toast

When time is up bring the pan to the sink and immediately begin running cold water in it.

Place your eggs in the egg cups and just tap the top of the egg with your spoon to crack it.
