recipe wednesday: soft boiled egg

this is more of a how to than a recipe... but it is one of my favorite meals, that took a while to perfect. 

hard boiled eggs are easy, you just stick the eggs in and boil the water, you don't really have to think about the time {as long as you boil them long enough}.  soft boiled are a little more tricky. i like mine not too runny and not too firm. i also enjoy mine on very crispy toast with a slice of avocado. yum!

how to make the perfect soft boiled egg:

-place your egg in a pot of cool water {be sure it is fully emerged}
-turn stove top on high heat and wait until water starts boiling
-as soon as the water starts to boil, set your timer to 5 minutes
-run your egg under cool water after 5 minutes is up
-don't wait too long to crack your egg

if all else fails, go buy yourself an egg timer. i had one for a while, and it works great. i must have left one in australia, and one in seattle, so i have had to learn how to perfect my soft boiled eggs sans timer.

love, kbn
