Easy Boiled Eggs
Bring your eggs to room temperature before boiling. If the eggs are too cold, the shells may crack during cooking.
Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water. Place the pan over medium heat. Bring to a gentle simmer, gently stirring the eggs constantly in a clockwise direction. The movement of the water helps to centre the yolks.
- Simmer the eggs for 4 minutes for soft-boiled eggs
- For semi-firm yolks and hard whites, simmer for 5 minutes
- For hard-boiled eggs, simmer for 8 minutes
Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the water. Transfer to an egg cup and serve immediately.
