Fill a pot with enough cold water so that there will be at least ½ inch of water above the eggs. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Place the eggs in the pot and cook for 3 to 5 minutes (depending on your own preference for soft-boiled eggs).
Remove the eggs from the pot and place in cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel off the shells. These will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
These taste delicious sprinkled with salt and pepper and served with toast or a good crusty bread.
