The Glory That Is the Six-Minute Egg

The Glory That Is the Six-Minute Egg

With a creamy, gooey yolk—the texture of molasses—and a delicately set white, a six-minute egg is sheer perfection.

Time it just right, and you’ll have something wonderful to add to salads, noodle bowls, pastas, and soups and stews, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Try them peeled and enveloped in a rich tomato or curry sauce, or make them the centre of the finest Scotch eggs you’ll ever sink your teeth into.


Add room-temperature eggs to boiling water and start the timer

—six minutes and not a second more!

—then immediately cool under running cold water.
