It's What's For Breakfast

I don't know what is going on out there, but suddenly it seems as if everywhere I look someone is talking about soft boiled eggs.  The book I was reading, popping up in my pinterest feed, a blog post I read.  It's as if the universe was trying to tell me something.  Being the big pushover for the power of suggestion that I apparently am - I soon found myself craving this dish. 

I'm a big fan of a good egg.  (I still mourn the loss of my own fresh, homegrown supply of them)  While a slimey undercooked white grosses me out a little, I do love a runny yolk.  So, soft boiled seems like a no brainer.  Right?  Why am I not eating more of these?

It was settled.  Soft boiled eggs on toast it was!

Delicious!  And it couldn't be simpler.  (well, ok - it probably could.  But this was still pretty easy)

  • Put about 3 to 4 inches of water in a small sauce pan
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Add eggs.
  • Boil (simmer) for 6 minutes
  • Remove eggs to an ice bath.  Let them soak for several minutes.
  • Peel eggs. (or just peel the top off and scoop out with a spoon or some of that toast)
  • Crack whites open over a slice of toast so that the runny golden yummyness runs out.
  • Consume and delight.
See, simple - right?   Kind of makes me want to invest in a few egg cups, as I see this becoming part of my regular breakfasts rotation.

Hope you enjoy them as much as  I did!
