Back to my breakfast inspiration. On a lot of the dishes that David Chang makes at the noodle bar he tops them with a soft cooked egg. I have on occasion accidentally made soft cooked eggs in an attempt to make hard boiled eggs. You would think that hard boiled eggs were the easiest thing to make especially for a beginning cook. Not for me. I have a handwritten note in my recipe file from Mom on how to hard boil eggs. I thought I was the only one but then discovered my best friend Kat tried her first attempt at making hardboiled eggs this summer. I told her how easy it was and gave her really loose directions (she doesn't really care to cook) 45 mins later she still had raw eggs in the pan. I was like "What the heck did you do?" I think we discovered she kept the water on low the whole time instead of bringing it to a boil first. Hahahahaha. Lesson learned.
Well I decided to make some soft cooked eggs David Chang style (In fact they have been around forever but he inspired me to take a stab at it.) I happen to be one of those people who is GAGA for goopy eggs. It's liquid gold. These eggs were wicked easy to make and I put them on top of a "Breakfast Salad" that I made this morning. It's becoming my new favorite breakfast. Veggies, protein, hot sauce. What's not to love? You don't need to eat salad at only lunch and dinner. Don't people eat breakfast for dinner? BREAK OUT OF THE MOLD! Don't be a sheep. BAAAA. LoL.
Soft Cooked Eggs
I only make 2 at a time. You could try doing it in a big batch, may not turn out though.
Bring a pot of water to a simmer.
Add you eggs to water (still in shell)
Set the timer for 6 minutes
Remove egg and submerge in cold water (I just run it under the faucet)
