    1. 1
      Bring 1/2 inch of water to boil in a pot with steamer basket. ( I use my electric kettle to heat the water super fast.).
    2. 2
      Using tongs, put both eggs in the steamer basket and cover. Set timer for 6 1/2 minutes.
    3. 3
      When time is up, immediately run cold water on them.
    4. 4
      Peel, add salt pepper and butter, or use over pasta or an Aussie style burger!

      Perfect!!! No muss, no fuss. The yolk is nice and creamy and all the white is done. Just the way I like it. It is funny as Cook's Country just showed almost this method - as though they discovered it. They put the egg in 1/2" of the boiling water. I like it in the steamer above the water myself. They also commented that it does not matter if it is 1 or 8 eggs - the same time. Maybe they, too, found it on the internet. Next day I ran under cold water and it really makes the egg release better without making it cold.
