Foolproof Soft-Set Eggs

Foolproof Soft-Set Eggs

These are super set soft-set boiled eggs with smooth whites.
Use eggs straight from the refrigerator! Foolproof! Just put a lid on and wait for 12 (or 13) minutes patiently.

Ingredients: 4 eggs

Eggs (medium to large)


1. Bring 1 liter (5 cups - 1000 ml) of water to a boil in a pan with a lid.
2. When the water comes to a boil, take it off the heat and add 200 ml (1 cup) of water, and put in the eggs. (You can put them in straight from the refrigerator.)
3. Now just wait with the lid on for 12 minutes! In the winter 13 minutes seems to work better!
4. After 12 minutes, take the eggs out right away and let them rest for at least 3 minutes. Break them open gently as you would with raw eggs.

Story Behind this Recipe
