This is an easy process. Soon you’ll be making them with your eyes closed!

 

Over a medium-high heat, bring a pot of water to a soft simmer between 195 and 200 degrees .

Crack the eggs into the pot. Two inches of water should cover them. Cook for 4 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, retrieve the eggs and serve with your favorite breakfast dish.

 

Chef’s Tips:

Crack the eggs into a large bowl, ensuring that the yokes are intact. When you are ready to cook them, gently pour into the simmering water.

For convenience, the eggs can be prepared earlier and reheated in a pot of simmering water. Just transfer the eggs into a bowl of cold water and store them in the refrigerator. This is a nifty little trick, especially when cooking for a crowd.

Ingredients:

8 eggs
