Recipe by dojemi

I've always loved soft boiled eggs. Serve these with toast fingers.

I agree- 6 min was too long and live @ an elevation of 400ft MSL! Two eggs were almost ready for deviled eggs. Not runny in the least.

I do like this recipie as it doesn't require pin pricking the shell or dropping eggs in already boiling water. The shells were intact when "done".
