How to Make SOFT-COOKED DIPPING EGGS

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the eggs in a single layer in a deep saucepan with enough water to cover eggs at at least an inch.
  2. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Immediately remove pan from heat to stop boiling. Cover the saucepan and let eggs stand in water for 2 to 4 minutes until cooked as desired.
  3. Drain the water and immediately run cold water over the eggs to cool them a bit. Place each egg into an egg cup.
  4. Toast the bread and spread with butter. Cut toast into 1-inch strips.
  5. Crack the tops off eggs with a knife. Salt and pepper eggs as desired. Serve toast strips with eggs for dipping into soft yolks.
