Use this technique with a steamer basket for easy to peel eggs! Soft boiled or jammy style eggs with an easy off shell is a great way to start the day.
Jammy eggs jazz up so many lunch and dinner dishes too! Top ramen bowls, salad and more.
For jammy eggs 7 minutes, semi jammy 8 mins (shown in video) and 12 minutes for hard cooked style.
- Put a vegetable steamer basket in a pot large enough to hold it. I use this one.
- Add an inch or so of water but don’t allow it to come through the steamer holes.
- Add eggs and bring the water to a boil. Cover and let steam for amount of time above to achieve desired level of doneness.
- Immediately put eggs into a bowl of ice for 3 minutes then peel away the shell.
