My Kinda Boiled Eggs

This is the way I LOVE my eggs but many times, because of small details of not having recorded the procedure somewhere, I feel like it's easy to miss out on simple things that give you a sense of "Hygge" (pronounced Hoo-gah). Simply put, Hygge is any person, place, thing or practice that gives to a sense of coziness and belonging.

To give you an example, someone may ask me what I would like for breakfast and that someone may be a person who would cook me whatever I wanted if they were able to. Even with that situation, it may seem too much of an effort when I'm snuggled with a book to explain to them how to cook the perfect medium boiled egg on a chilly, cloudy, day. If I can point them to a website however, that makes it way simpler; but then you have to remember that. So this is a good working solution for now...

If by the looks of it, you feel like it's your kinda egg, then enjoy :)


  • Eggs

  • Salt

  • Pepper


  1. Place eggs in saucepan. Add enough water for the water level to about a 1/2 inch above eggs.

  2. Bring the water to a boil and then cover the eggs.

  3. Set the timer and cook for 7 minutes

  4. Immediately turn off the burner once the timer goes off.

  5. Remove eggs with a pasta fork or soup ladle and put in a chilled ice bath (a fancy way of saying a bowl with ice water - however you manage it).

  6. Let it sit in the ice bath for 2-3 minutes.

  7. It's ready to peel, slice, (season, if you please) and eat.
