The Best Recipe for Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs
Perfect soft-boiled eggs demand the right skill. Before settling on this technique, we cooked dozens and dozens of eggs. And it consistently produces eggs with tender whites and yolks.
- 8L clean water
- 1 to 6 large eggs
In a medium-sized pot, bring water to a low boil. With a slotted spoon or strainer, gently lower eggs into the water (do not drop eggs into the water, as they might crack or break). Cook for 6 minutes, and after that remove eggs with a slotted spoon and serve.
