IMPROVE THE WAY YOU COOK
When we start boiling an egg, we usually have appetite for something specific. Soft, runny eggs or hard-boiled – we rarely achieve what we want, though. Well, there is a way to do it!
Runny eggs are a perfect match to a toasted bread over breakfast, while hard-boiled eggs can be sliced and tossed into dinner sandwiches along with tomatoes, graviera and feta cheese and some whole wheat bread with a drop of olive oil.
Is there actually a way we can always achieve the perfect boiled egg? Of course there is! Horio has collected some fine tips that will guide us through the egg-boiling business. Let’s read them:
What we need
- 6 eggs from the fridge
- Cold water
- Put eggs in a pot and fill with cold water until eggs are sufficiently covered.
- Turn up heat and let water reach a boiling point, without covering the pot.
- When water starts boiling, turn off the heat and remove pot. Cover the pot with its lid.
- Leave eggs into covered pot for desirable time, depending on how soft or hard boiled we wish our eggs to be.
- After chosen time, move eggs to a bowl filled with cold water and leave for 1 minute.
- Runny eggs: 3 minutes
- Slightly runny: 4 minutes
- Soft whites: 6 minutes
- Firm eggs: 10 minutes
- Hard-boiled eggs: 15 minutes
Our eggs are ready. Peel them and enjoy in sandwiches, over breakfast, or as a snack!
Can be stored in refrigerator for 6-7 days.
