How to prepare Soft-boiled eggs

To prepare soft-boiled eggs, make sure to use very fresh and intact eggs. Place a pot full of water 1 on the stove and bring to a gentle boil. Once it reaches a boil, add the eggs 2, they should cook for 4 minutes 3: you can calculate the exact time with a timer. Consider that the temperature of the egg and the size can affect the minutes of cooking: 4 minutes of boiling for medium-sized and fridge-cold eggs; 3 minutes of boiling at most for room temperature eggs.

Once ready, carefully drain them 4 and place them on an egg cup; then gently tap with a teaspoon on the top of the egg 5 so as to break the shell. Remove the shell fragments and strip the egg of the white until the semi-liquid yolk is revealed. Then serve your soft-boiled eggs accompanied with crispy toast 6.


It is recommended to consume soft-boiled eggs as soon as they are prepared. Freezing is not recommended.


You can make your soft-boiled eggs even tastier by seasoning with salt and pepper to taste, but also with a teaspoon of spreadable cheese or poppy seeds!
