to prepare perfect soft cooked eggs every time, i often use my Cuisinart egg cooker. however, if i plan to only make one egg, i have developed a perfect every time technique for making this recipe.
bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. lower the egg into the water with a slotted spoon. cover the pot and remove from the heat and allow to stand for 4 to 6 minutes. the egg will be perfectly soft cooked every time.
remove from the water and crack open the wider end of the egg. using an egg slicer, remove the top of the egg, place in an egg cup and serve for breakfast.
soft cooked eggs are delicious will toast fingers for dipping.
