I think that 'soft or hard' sums it up..
I've not boiled many eggs, other than hard boiled for those dishes which need a hard boiled egg..
I think I have to practice 'soft' boil as what you describe is exactly as I like my eggs..

I am on a breakfast soup kick right now. I made a vegan hot and sour soup this morning, plan on miso mushroom for tomorrow. I do go dirtyvegan and add a poached egg every now and again. I make enough to share with a friend who is vegan. He buys the main ingredients, I cook and he picks up 2x a week and pays me. Works for me.

I've been trying my poached egg on top of anything I can find in the fridge.
Ham with a cheesy bechamel sauce,
leftover taco meat with most of the trimmings (that was good),
slight drizzle of truffle oil on the toast under (think this is my favourite so far),
chorizo and mushrooms on toast,
creamed mushrooms,
various breads, rye, oat, potato, english muffin, croissant,
and of course sometimes bacon with various of the above.

Have savoured each and every one - hmmm... with the exception of the one where unbeknownst to me, the yolk was broken underneath and ergo got a bit too well done. So not perfect but ok.
How on earth did I managed to break the yolk!

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
