I don't like them hard boiled, so I made a soft boiled egg for myself. ALAS! We don't own any egg cups! what is a body to do!?

I meant to tell you *how* to do boiled eggs!
Very gently, tap the bottom (wide end) of the eggs on the counter to 'crack' the bottom...it will sound like a little click. you obviously don't want to *break* the egg. This is where the air sack thing is. This helps for when the egg expands when it's cooking. The air gets pushed out, and your egg doesn't leak! I *think* this helps with peeling too.
Stick your eggs in *cold* water, covered. Turn on the burner to just before high. Bring the eggs to a *gentle* rolling boil. If you like your eggs soft, this is when you take them out. If you like them hard, *gently* boil for 12 minutes. This is where you get to experiment on how hard you like them. I like the yokes runny, but not the whites, so I let the egg sit for a minute in the gentle rolling boil. I guess that is where you ask for timed eggs. I like one minute eggs, some like fifteen! I guess a medium egg is a six minute egg.
how do you like your 'boiled' eggs?
