Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs

My dear Mom had these cute little egg cups (like the one pictured above) and we used to eat our soft boiled eggs directly from the shell with a teaspoon. It seemed so luxurious to me as a kid.

Here's my foolproof soft boiled eggs. I love the fact that there is no oil. Break one of these on top of a piece of toast with a tiny bit of salt makes a wonderful breakfast.

Place eggs in small saucepan just till covered. Turn on heat on medium flame. When eggs start 'dancing' turn down heat and cook for 2 minutes.

Pour off hot water and add cold water to pan to stop the egg from cooking any more.

Peel and eat! This is such a wonderful comfort food that reminds me of my childhood. The fact that they are cooked with no added fat is a bonus!
