Boiling eggs is very easy and as a bonus you get a super healthy snack in 10 min! Boiled eggs (soft or hard) are an excellent snack and could be a great addition to your breakfast, salad topping and dinner dish topping. They are low-calorie food and a great source of lean protein. Packed with lots of minerals and vitamins, such as iron, calcium, B vitamins, selenium, copper, zinc, and antioxidants like choline, lutein and zeaxanthin, eggs are a great addition for your diet.

I personally like the soft boiled eggs because they are easier to digest and a healthier option than hard boiled eggs. And honestly, it just tastes better to me. I tend to boil my eggs for about 5-6 minutes instead of the full 10 min for hard boiled eggs.

Notes

  • Boiling time for the eggs may vary depending on how you like the yolk. Boil the eggs for 6-7 minutes for a runnier yolk or 10-12 minutes for hard boiled yolk.
  • Boiling time may also varies on how many eggs you have in the pot. If you have 2-3 eggs, the time will be much shorter than if you had 10-12 eggs.
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
