Exactly like Hard boiling only you cook them for less time. I like mine about 5 minutes but most people prefer them at 3. Just take them out with a slotted spoon and cut the tops off. You need to do that pretty quickly or they will continue to cook. We like to dip toast fingers in ours...but bacon is good too. Yum.
