Simple soft-boiled eggs on spinach

Everyone knows the easiest go-to breakfast are boiled eggs - but never make the mistake of assuming that because they're easy, anyone can make them! It's not true. Boiled eggs can be tricky, if you leave them a minute longer they can turn out to be harder than you wanted, and if you take them out a minute earlier they can turn out to be too runny and fall everywhere (yuck)!!


Soft boiled eggs

The trick is to place the eggs in cold water and wait for the water to boil - and I mean really boil, boil, and not just wait for a bubble or two to rise up.


For hard boiled eggs: once the water boils, set your timer to 7-10 minutes and set the heat on low.


For medium to soft boiled eggs: turn off the heat as soon as the water boils and set the timer to 5 minutes.


For more runny eggs: turn off the heat as soon as the water boils and set the timer to 3 minutes.


For all types, once the timer ticks, drop the hot water and replace with cold water and immediately peel (so it doesn't cook further) and serve.


That's it! Can't wait for you to become a boiled-eggs expert, or should I say, eggs-pert?
