Steamed Boiled Eggs – Redux Tuesday


Carole's Chatter: Steamed Boiled Eggs – Redux Tuesday


Thanks to Sunny Simple Life for this idea of steaming eggs in their shell.

Carole's Chatter: Steamed Boiled Eggs – Redux Tuesday

So this experiment was very simple.  Just put about an inch of water into the bottom of a pot.  Pop a sieve or strainer on top.  Bring the water to a boil.  As you can see the sieve I used had a plastic surround and I was a little anxious about whether the plastic would be damaged by being heated for so long.  But it seemed ok.  A fully metal sieve would be preferable.

Then pop the eggs into the sieve (not touching the water) and cover the pot.  6 minutes for soft boiled and 13 minutes for hard boiled eggs.  Add 2 minutes to each time if your eggs are fridge cold.

If you are not going to eat the eggs immediately, cool them down with cold water so they stop cooking.

Because I'm not into runny yolks, I finished the soft one off with a quick moderate blast in the microwave – worked a treat!
