Hard Boiled vs. Soft Boiled
You’ll notice that this recipe calls for soft-boiled eggs. That means the cook time is reduced compared to hard-boiled eggs.
As you’d expect, the result is a softer, less solidified version of hard-boiled eggs. You’ll love the taste, and the faster cooking time!
To make soft-boiled eggs, bring water to a boil and place your eggs in the pot. Boil for 8-9 minutes, then immediately place in an ice bath.
Give them a couple minutes to cool – you don’t want to burn your hands peeling – and then remove the shells.
If you have an instant pot, then why not try experimenting making boiled eggs in there…check out the recipe here for instructions.
