cook perfect boiled eggOn many breakfast tables in Germany you will find a soft-boiled egg. It’s still my favorite way to eat an egg.  I love the smooth feel of just-solid egg white, and the creaminess of still liquid egg yolk, delicious. But… how do you cook  boiled eggs perfect every time? and how do you eat it?

How to Cook Boiled Eggs Perfect… every Time

Set a pan of water on the stove over high heat.

-Poke the bottom (fat part) of the Egg with a needle or Ei Stoecher

-When the water is lukewarm, place the egg/eggs in the water

-When the water begins to boil, turn down the heat and set the timer….

Perfect Soft Boiled Egg Time

3-4 minutes for very soft
5-6 minutes for just soft
8 minutes for hard boiled
-Take the pot off the stove, drain a bit, and run cold water into the pan over the egg to stop the cooking.

-Place the egg in the Egg Cup

You need to poke the egg with a needle before cooking, so the air inside won’t cause it to explode… this device is easiest for getting it just right.

How to Take the Top off the Egg

-Hold your table knife in the other hand

-You want to cut the top off with a firm whack!

-Salt and eat the bit that came out of the top shell… then put the shell into the egg cup under the larger portion of egg.

-Eat the rest

Tap Tap Tap

Some people like the method of tapping the egg with the back of the spoon to crack the egg. Then they peel it to expose the egg.
This works too… just please please please… clean up your shell bits!

  1. Bought egg cups and egg spoons decades ago on our first return visit to Berlin. In the 1970’s bought the Krups egg cooker in the 1970’s. Have been using them ever since. We’ve noticed the really orange color of the soft boiled eggs on visits to Germany. Thought it was the chicken feed in Germany. Nothing like German broetchen, German soft boiled eggs and German Aufschnitt. Had great breakfasts in our hotel in Goslar last year.
