Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I did a variation on a poached egg by making a soft boiled egg. Poaching eggs is one of my favorite ways to cook them – I think they end up having an amazing texture that’s firm on the outside but nice and dippy on the inside. I decided to try a soft boiled egg and see how it compares to my favorite poached egg method.
The soft boiled eggs were amazing! The texture was perfect and the yolk, while slightly firm, had a nice, slightly dippy consistency. I’ll definitely be ordering my eggs soft boiled from now on.
The full recipe can be found in Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set). I think every good cook deserves to have a copy of Julia Child’s masterpiece in their kitchen.
Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!
