The Ideal Boiled Egg

26 October 2019
The Ideal Boiled Egg

Always start with eggs at room temperature to optimally estimate cooking time and minimize cracking when boiling eggs.

For a soft boiled egg, lower the egg with a slotted spoon into the boiling water. Wait three and a half minutes for a medium egg and four minutes for a large egg. Egg yolk will be fluid. If you want your boiled eggs a little bit harder, cook for another minute.

For a hard boiled egg, start the egg with cold water and boil. When the water slowly boils, set the timer between 7-10 minutes, depending on how well you cook your eggs. The longer you boil the egg, the harder it is.

After cooking, immerse the boiled egg in plenty of cold water for one minute. Drain and cover with cooler water. This prevents the egg from continuing to cook at its own temperature. Breaking the shell with a spoon from behind during cooling will facilitate peeling of the egg. Also, if you add salt to the boiled water, it will peel easier.
