These jammy, creamy, velvety eggs are a perfect start to the day. With high levels of protein and HDL cholesterol, this a nutritious and delicious choice for any breakfast.
Typically, hard boiled eggs can have a sulfur-like smell due to the overcooking of the egg white, which releases the sulfuric odor in the egg. Medium boiling eggs eliminates this problem, as the eggs are just barely cooked (but safe), leaving the semi-yolks runny.
3 whole eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cumin seeds (optional)
Heat 1 inch of water in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Gently place in eggs with a slotted spoon.
Wait 7.5 minutes, and gently remove the eggs. Shock the eggs in an ice bath - this will make peeling easier.
When peeling, first crack the wider, bottom part of the egg. There is an air sac there, which will help remove the shell.
Slice eggs in half lengthwise and season with salt, pepper, and optionally cumin seeds. The whites should be just set, but bouncy, and the yolks should be runny.
