Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

I'm all about quick, easy, light meals this time of year. One of my favorites for any meal of the day is  soft-boiled eggs. That runny yolk is perfect over toasted bread, sautéed kale (as pictured), grilled asparagus, stir-fried rice, or a bowl of ramen noodles.

To make these sexy eggs, simply put a small pan of water on to boil. When it boils, gently lower the eggs into the water with a spoon. Make sure there's enough water to cover the eggs. Boil for exactly 6 minutes. Immediately (and carefully) drain off the boiling water and run the eggs under cold water until cool enough to peel. Peel gently. Cut open and swoon.

Haven’t gotten out my egg cups in years but did this morning -- eggs turned out perfectly, thanks for the reminder, way easier than poached!
