How to soft boil eggs without cracking them
- Bring a saucepan with enough water to cover eggs to a rolling boil.
- Using a knife with a sharp tip, very carefully pierce a tiny hole into the base of the egg. The base is the end that is the fattest. This will prevent your egg from cracking when you slip it into the boiling water. Without the hole, sometimes the pressure inside the egg forces it to split open and the whites to spill into the water.
- Next, using a spoon, gently lower the eggs one at a time into the boiling water. Reduce heat to low and set a timer for six minutes.
- When you deem the eggs to be ready drain immediately and run under cold water to halt the cooking process.
