You only need 6 minutes to achieve runny and creamy soft boiled eggs. Enjoy these tender eggs with your favorite toast or ramen for more rich flavors.

Prep: 4 mins
Cook: 6 mins
Total: 10 mins


  • 8 eggs


  1. Fill a medium pot of water and bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer where the water is just vibrating.

  2. Gently lower the eggs into the water with a spoon. Simmer for 6 to 7 minutes (6 for a very runny yolk and 7 for still runny and barely starting to set).

  3. Meanwhile, prepare a bowl filled with water and ice cubes. When the eggs are done, immediately place them in the ice bath and let them cool for about 2 minutes.

  4. Peel the eggs by lightly tapping the bottom end (the larger end that has the air bubble). When the shell crushes, gently peel off the shell in pieces.

  5. Slice in half and serve.
