Making My Perfect Half Boiled Egg


I've been asked to share some tips on making half boiled eggs as friends always see me posting photos of eggs that I make on Facebook. So to appease the requests even though it might not be as perfect as those done by professionals, here's the tips:

1. Bring water to a boil (in the pot) and turn off flame.

2. Placed eggs into the pot and set timer for 3 1/2 minutes (for room temperature eggs) / 7 minutes (for eggs from fridge).

3. Remove eggs from pot and break the shells.



For those of you who wants to make Soft Boiled Eggs,

1. Bring water to a boil (in the pot) and turn off flame.

2. Placed eggs into the pot and set timer for 5 minutes (for room temperature eggs) / 8 1/2 minutes (for eggs from fridge).

3. Remove eggs from pot, serve on a egg cup and tap the shell gently from the top to break.

4. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.


A point to remember is that even after you remove the eggs from the hot water, it will still continue to cook inside the shell, so leave it in the shell for too long and you'd get a different result.

Bonus tip: For Hard Boiled Eggs, whether you're deshelling a single egg or a large amount of eggs in the fastest way possible. I do this often when I was helping out at a relative's restaurant and we need to get food prepared in the most efficient manner.

1. Place eggs into container

2. Pour water in - about 1/4 of the bowl would do.

3. Place a lid (or a plate) over the container

4. Shake and watch the shells get shed from the white.
