*Heavy sauce pans hold heat evenly and timed cooking turns out better. It just sounds all “foo foo” … but it does make a difference.
While the water is coming up to a boil … break your egg into a small bowl … then gently pour the egg into a strainer! This will drain off the thin watery stuff that makes those nasty white snotty things in your water!
Carefully pour the egg back into the small bowl … then gently add it to the simmering water.
Set timer for 3 minutes.
Stir gently to keep it moving around and from sticking to the bottom. This will also ensure the whites are tight and cooking evenly.
When time is up … remove with slotted spoon.
Add a touch of butter & salt.
P.S. The fresher the eggs ~ the better. Not as much white watery crap.
