Soft-Boiled Eggs
We hear so much about baked eggs (with tomatoes, inside avocado shells...) and putting fried eggs on everything from burgers to pizza. But when it comes to quick, easy and healthy ways to cook eggs, it's hard to top soft-boiled. You simply set the eggs in a saucepan, cover them with cold water, turn the stove on medium-high and bring the water to a boil. Then you turn off the heat, put a lid on the pot and let the eggs sit in the water for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. Break off the top and spoon out the egg (cup optional) or dip slices of toasted bread inside.
