Simple Soft-Cooked Egg with Toast

With its yolk barely set at the edges and defiantly runny throughout, this three-minute egg is, indeed, perfect -- but not quite complete without a slice of chewy, thick-cut country-style bread, toasted as you please and served on the side for dipping.

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 or 2 slices bread
  • Unsalted butter, for bread
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Place egg in a small saucepan, and add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Cook for 3 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, toast bread. Butter, and then cut in half diagonally. Remove egg from saucepan. Briskly tap wider end of egg with the back of a spoon until shell cracks. Remove the cracked top with the spoon. Season with salt and pepper, and serve with the toast.
