Cook the eggs in a pan with a lid on. Cover and cook over medium heat, turning the eggs over, and scraping down the sides, until the eggs are soft-cooked (about 3 to 5 minutes per side). Make sure to wear rubber gloves when you cook eggs because they can stain your hands. For added fun, cook the eggs in a non-stick pan instead of a regular pan. This way you don’t need to worry about grease splatters and cleaning the pan afterwards. If you prefer the traditional way of cooking eggs, place the eggs into a pot with 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a boil. Cover the pot and turn the heat to low. Allow the eggs to cook until they are soft-cooked.
Can an Egg Be Poached?
When eggs are poached in a water bath, they often get to a certain color. This color is known as the “over-set” color. The over-set color will depend on a number of factors, such as the amount of water in the egg. There are also times when you will want to poach eggs for a different reason. When eggs are poached over a long period of time, they can get a rubbery texture. For this reason, you may want to poach your eggs for a shorter amount of time.
How Long Should Eggs Be Cooked?
As an egg is cooked, it will go through a number of different stages. First the egg white will begin to harden. As it continues to cook, it will begin to get a bit soft. Then it will get hard again as the yolk begins to harden. Once the egg is cooked all the way through it is ready to eat. For hard boiled eggs, the process should take about 10 minutes. For over boiled eggs, it should take about 12 minutes.
How Do I Hard Boil An Egg?
To hard boil eggs, place them in a pot, cover them with water, and bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain off the water, cool, and peel. You can also hard boil eggs in the microwave. Just place them in a microwave safe bowl, cover, and microwave for 5 minutes at full power.
Tips for Cooking Eggs
It is important to remember that eggs should be boiled for about 10 minutes. If they are not fully cooked, they may be unsafe to eat.
How Long to Boil Eggs
When boiled, an egg remains soft in the center and hard on the outside. This is referred to as the “doneness” of an egg. To determine if an egg is cooked correctly, drop it into a bowl of cold water. If the yolk remains opaque, then the egg is cooked too long. If the yolk is cooked and turns white, the egg is perfect. You can also cook eggs by cracking them into a skillet or saucepan, add some water, cover, and turn the heat to medium. Cook until the water has just started to boil. Then carefully lower the heat to low. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolk is still soft.
