depending on the size of the egg - 6-7 minutes

I've always set mine for 15 minutes off the heat. Once I drain them, I shake them around in the pan to crack the shells, and then fill the pan up with ice and cold water. They peel perfectly and are never gray/green. I don't like any softness in my yolks.

One of the first 'recipe' cards my mom ever gave me was her instructions for hard boiled eggs. Her method is the same as above although I dont put the lid on the pan once its off the heat. Regardless, it always turns out a perfect egg.

My front burners are really powerful and if the eggs rest on the bottom of the pan they start to pop and crack. I've learned to place a steamer (a folding metal one) in the pan and that keeps them off the bottom/direct heat.

I have to boil the eggs for 2-3 minutes and then cover the pan and turn off the heat and then proceed with the 10-minutes wait for hard-boiled eggs.

If you are going to dye them for easter, cracking them before the ice bath will not work!!!!!!!

The perfect soft-boiled egg should have firm, custard-like whites and a warm, runny yolk — this is what my host mother taught me when I lived with her family in France for a summer in high school, and it's still the standard to which I hold my soft-boiled eggs today.

Eating an egg is a great start to the morning, and an egg also stays with you through the day. A soft-boiled egg is a great way to eat this protein-rich food without grease, but it can be a bit difficult to master: timing is very crucial, and eggs tend to crack. We'll show you a couple ways to make this tasty morsel just the way you like.

I personally like my eggs completely cooked as in scrambled or fried. The thought of dipping something in my egg turns me completely off.

My favorite breakfast lately is a bowl of warm jasmine rice with a little coconut oil mixed in, whatever greens I have on hand, and a soft boiled egg. Oh, and sometimes a splash of sriracha.
