Soft-Boiled Eggs

Do you eat breakfast? I do. Every morning. An egg (usually fried with plenty of butter), on mashed avocado, on some sort of carb (usually unhealthy, white toast). Yum, it's making me hungry just thinking about it.

So last Friday, when A Cup of Jo posted a link for perfectly cooked, soft-boiled eggs, I was intrigued. Eggs cooked without butter? I wasn't so sure about it. The pictures made them look delicious though, so I figured I ought to try it. I made them this morning and they weren't good, they were great! Super easy to make and healthier than the stick of butter I usually use to fry my eggs. Perhaps this is the answer to the Jessica Alba beach bod I've always wanted...

Soft-Boiled Eggs: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add your eggs. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the the heat and immediately add eggs to a bowl of ice water. Chill for 1-2 minutes. Peel and enjoy!

P.S. I know. Two food posts, one week? Yes. Why? Because it's winter and all I do is eat.
