we had our soft boiled eggs-periment this morning.

after trying a few different methods with most failures undercooked (that ended up becoming fried eggs for the pets), we settled on one method: bring a pot of water to a rolling boil, turn off heat, carefully lower eggs into water. set timer for 8 minutes for extra large eggs. after 8 minutes, remove eggs, rinse under cold water, then put in egg cups (i don't have egg cups social we used shot glasses)

using an exceedingly sharp knife, cut the egg just about 1/3rd of the way down cleanly through.

some we ate over home fries; others just by spooning onto toast.

once we got it down, we had an eggcellent breakfast.

thanks again to everyone for their help.

lol, the funniest time today was when we were happy with our first success, and my boy said, "hey y'all. put some south in your mouth!".

i laughed and asked where in the world he heard that, and he said he watched paula deen on "master chef" the other day.

Buckytom...shot glasses! What a great idea - I may have to steal that until I get some cute little egg cups.

Glad the end result was what you had hoped for. And bucky jr. sounds like a delightful little guy. Enjoy your vacation!

I have egg cups, but only one shot glass! I prefer poached over soft boiled...and I love coddled eggs...have no idea where my egg coddlers are...I'm sure I'll find them someday.

I guess you could use the egg cups to serve shots...

Some of my egg cups are wooden (and have little knit stocking caps). Don't think I want to use those to serve shots!
