This is what I had for breakfast today, soft boiled egg with toasted bread sticks. I hardly cook eggs this way but I've been reading a lot about eggs lately so I decided to give it a try to having it this way today.

Here are a few pointers to getting it can do it in two ways. The first one would be to boil water in a saucepan then turn the heat off. Using a ladle, slowly immerse the room temperature egg in the freshly boiled water. Cover with the lid and allow to steep for 4 minutes. The second way is to place room temperature eggs in a saucepan and fill the pan with water, enough to submerge the eggs. Heat on medium heat and as soon as the water boils, allow to boil for 1 1/2 minutes. The egg whites will be slightly set and the yolks will still be runny.

To serve, immediately place egg in an egg cup and tap the pointed end of the egg using a spoon to take off the top. Serve with toasted bread sliced into sticks so you can easily dip them in the silky and creamy yolks.

Have a good egg morning!
