Making Easy Perfect Soft-Cooked Eggs

HOW TO MAKE EASY PERFECTLY COOKED SOFT-BOILED EGGS!

Several times a week, my mother and I each enjoy a nutrient packed soft-boiled egg for breakfast. With these easy steps, you can make perfect, to your liking, soft-cooked eggs every time.

One large egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals and all 9 essential amino acids, as well as 6 grams of high-quality protein. Eggs are an excellent addition to a well-rounded real food meal plan.

EGGS AND WATER THE REAL FOOD INGREDIENTS

First, fill a small saucepan with hot water and set it on your stove burner on high. Once the water comes to a full boil, remove the pan from the heat and with a spoon gently place cold eggs, one at a time, into the pan.

Then set the pan back on the burner and turn the heat down slightly until the water reaches a slow rolling boil. Set your stove or egg timer NOW.

The eggs will need to cook between 5 and 7 minutes. I cook our eggs for 6 minutes, because we like them mostly runny with a slightly set yolk. Experiment with different cooking times until you find the perfect qualities for your soft-cooked eggs.

Once the cooking time has been reached, remove the eggs from the stove and immediately fill the pan with cold running water. This will stop the cooking process.

NOTE: I would not cook more than four eggs at one time, because the cooking time will need to be adjusted.

As soon as you can handle the temperature of the egg in your hand, using a small spoon tap a circle around the top quarter of the egg and remove the top.

Next, circle the spoon around the inside of the shell and the egg will easily fall out into a small bowl. Scoop the egg out of the top piece also.

Enjoy alone with a sprinkle of salt or with a piece of whole grain toast for a healthy satisfying meal.

Eggs are considered a source of good high quality protein. They also contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, as well as all nine essential amino acids.
