Loaded with proteins, vitamins, and minerals, eggs are a healthy and affordable choice when it comes to breakfast—or any meal, for that matter! Don't fall into a rut with your standard scramble: Here's how to make soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, deviled eggs, and more. Time to get crackin'.
How to soft-boil eggs
To cook soft-boiled eggs, use the same technique as hard-boiling and simply steep the eggs in hot water for a bit less time: Put your eggs in a pan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then take the pan off the stove and cover. Let stand for 4 minutes.
To eat, use a knife to take the cap off of the egg (you can eat it straight from the shell).
