Morning Love with the Humble Egg

written by cookeatlove on February 15, 2012 in Blogalicious Thoughts with one Comment

There is something about a boiled egg in an egg cup. It’s consistent. With all of the modern conveniences and changing methods in cooking, the boiled egg remains that simplest of all morning egg dishes. Easter has these perfect ovals decorated and painted in beautiful pastels, but when Easter is gone and forgotten, I appreciate a colorful egg cup to bring morning cheer.

I enjoy an egg medium-soft so that a nice piece of toast may be dipped in it.

 

My perfect morning egg :
Bring water to a boil.
Place egg gently in pot with a big spoon.
Boil 4 minutes and 40 seconds.
Toast a slice of dense bread, something good and heavy.
Butter the toast and cut in 3 strips for dunking in the top of the cut egg.
