1/11 Photos of Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs
When I want a soft boiled egg I want the yolk soft and the white firm. The boiling time has a lot to do with your elevation. 5 minutes is perfect for an elevation of 1100 ft (330 meters) if you are nearer sea level decrease the boiling time if at a higher elevation increase the time. I was surprised that there wasn't a recipe for soft boiled eggs posted (just one with saltine crackers) So simple as it may be I am sure there are many that struggle for the perfect boiled egg. Invest in an egg pricker, a little tool that will prick a small hole in the bottom of the egg allowing the air to escape, preventing the egg from cracking as it boils
My Private Note

- 2add saltand keep it at a rapid boil.
- 3Prick the bottom (wider end) of the egg with an egg pricker
- 4Immerse in the boiling water and boil for exactly 5 minutes.
- 5Dash in cold water, crack & enjoy.
