    Even if you are not a kitchen prince, you should be able to make one recipe! Boil an egg!

    It seems easy, but if you are looking forward to a nice soft-boiled egg, it is of course a big disappointment when the result is a "snot" egg or a "crackle" hard egg!

    This recipe guarantees that you can make a delicious egg for your loved one for a romantic breakfast!

    Good luck!


    Fill the pan with enough water so that the eggs are completely submerged.

    Place the pan on the stove and wait until the water boils.

    There are recipes where you put the eggs in cold water and turn on the timer when the water boils...wrong wrong wrong. Unless you like a surprise because with this method you never know what you are going to get!

    Okay, the water is boiling.

    Poke a hole in the rounded bottom of the eggs with the egg piercer. You do this to give the air bubble in the egg the opportunity to escape during cooking (air then expands). If you forget this, the egg can crack in the pan, which is a pity, but it often works out well.

    Oh yes, the water is boiling!

    Take a spoon or a slotted spoon as in the photo and place the eggs in the water.

    Now just stick with it!

    Set the egg timer for 6 min 15 sec!

    When the water boils again, start the alarm!

    So now you have a little more than 6 minutes to do something else, but make sure you stay at a hearing distance from your kitchen timer!

    When the alarm goes off, turn off the heat and immediately pour the boiling water into the sink.

    Fill the pan with eggs with cold water!

    Let stand for 1 minute and then drain.

    Serve according to your own creativity.....a delicious soft egg.

    Delicious on a sandwich with ham or salmon!
