Soft-boiled eggs are very simple to make, just follow the right steps for a great result. Let's see how to prepare them now!
Soft-boiled eggs are one of the three possible ways of cooking whole eggs without removing them from the shell together with the hard-boiled egg and the much more classic hard-boiled egg. To prepare a perfect soft-boiled egg you have to follow a few simple rules which mainly concern the cooking time. The eggs, in fact, must be boiled for a maximum of 3 minutes or the time necessary for the egg white to coagulate.
The main characteristic of the preparation is given precisely by the fact that the yolk must be semi-liquid . You can serve the eggs prepared in this egg cup as a second course, but also for breakfast. In fact, you can serve it in a sweet version with the addition of caramel. In any case it is important to serve the eggs immediately after having prepared them with the yolk still hot.
Preparing soft-boiled eggs: cooking and tips
- First, put the eggs (you'll need 2 large ones taken straight from the fridge) in a saucepan, cover the eggs with cold water and put on the heat.
- Bring to the boil, then lower the heat slightly and cook for 3 minutes , calculating the right amount of time with the help of a timer.
- When cooked, turn off the heat, drain them delicately and place them on the egg cup, a necessary tool for serving soft-boiled eggs.
- With the help of a teaspoon, gently beat the top of the eggs.
- Remove the shell residues and discover the yolk which should be runny.
- Serve the soft-boiled eggs immediately with croutons. Enjoy your meal!
One more idea: to make the eggs even tastier you can season them with salt and pepper or a pinch of grated cheese .
We want to specify that the cooking times of the eggs vary considerably depending on many factors : the size, if they are cold from the fridge or at room temperature, how much water you put in the saucepan. In this case we used two large eggs taken directly from the fridge, we used a fairly small saucepan and added as much water as needed to cover the eggs.

Soft-boiled eggs must be made and eaten at the moment , conservation is not recommended. Rather, cook the egg for 8 minutes to obtain a hard-boiled egg (which you can keep in the fridge for a day without removing the shell ).
