Easy Boiled Eggs
Ingredients:
  1. Bring your eggs to room temperature before boiling. If the eggs are too cold, the shells may crack during cooking
  2. Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water. Place the pan over medium heat
  3. Bring to a gentle simmer, gently stirring the eggs constantly in a clockwise direction. The movement of the water helps to centre the egg yolks
  4. Simmer the eggs for four minutes for soft-boiled eggs. For semi-firm yolks and hard whites, simmer for 5 minutes. For hard-boiled eggs, simmer for 8 minutes
  5. Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg from the water. Transfer to an egg cup and serve immediately
Tips & Hints:
  • Before boiling eggs inspect them closely for the absence of even the tiniest crack. (A crack is the enemy of the boiled egg)
