Prep Time: 3-10mins Servings: Misc
  • eggs, room temperature

  • 1. Put room-temperature eggs into a saucepan of cold water and place over a medium heat. When the water comes to a simmer, turn off the heat and put the lid on the saucepan. 

  • 2. Leave in the pan until cooked the way you like them – see times below.

    • Soft-boiled 3–4 minutes
    • Firm white, soft yolk 4–7 minutes
    • Hard-boiled 8 minutes

  • 3. As soon as hard-boiled eggs are cooked, put them under cold running water for a few minutes. This prevents a grey ring forming on the outside of the yolk.
