I love soft boiled eggs. I seriously have eaten a piece of prosciutto and soft boiled eggs for breakfast every day this week. Is that weird? Maybe but it sure does taste good to me!
Here's how I make them. Boil a small saucepan of water on the stove and using a spoon, ease two eggs, one at a time, into the boiling water. If you try to drop them in, they will crack and the whites will begin to ooze out which isn't very pretty. Let them boil for four and a half minutes before removing them and running them under cool water for about a minute. Using a knife, crack each egg in half and then spoon the egg into a shallow dish. I like to have a small pat of butter sitting in the bottom of the bowl which helps make the egg yolk sauce a bit more creamy and saucy. Chop eggs to desired consistently (I like a good chop) and then season with freshly ground salt and pepper.
What's your favorite way to eat eggs? Mine's a toss up between soft and hard boiled.
Happy Friday everyone!
