Soft Boiled Eggs

soft boiled eggs recipe

My best friend Natalie and her sister Melissa introduced me to prepping soft boiled eggs for the week. For the last several months, the three of us always send snaps of our SBE’s (soft boiled eggs) to each other on snapchat. Yes, we are tools. But they are soooooo good!!! My husband and 3 year old love them too. I make a big batch of them on Sunday night and then we have them ready to go in the mornings for breakfast. 

I go through phases with eggs. I think because I avoided runny eggs when I was pregnant, now I am making up for lost time. Sometimes I love them, sometimes not so much. I’ve been in love with these SBE’s lately and I love that it’s a super convenient source of protein for my family. Also my 3 year old loves peeling them. Actually it’s a big problem if I try to peel it for her. Three year olds are very calm and rational people. 

Side note – did you know that super healthy chickens that eat organic and frolic around in the sun have SUPER yellow yolks? I’ve gotten some from local farms where the yolks are so yellow it’s almost orange. I LOVE IT. Honestly since I started eating almost all organic, conventional eggs taste and look gross to me. If you haven’t tried them yet, do yourself a favor!! I really think it makes a difference. 


Organic eggs – from a local farm if you can! You can use any amount that you need. It just depends how many will fit in your pot. 


1. Boil a pot of water. 

2. When it is already boiling, with a large spoon, carefully cradle the eggs into the pot with the spoon. 

3. Set a timer for 8-9 minutes. 8 minutes is about the perfect SBE. I usually do 9 minutes if sharing with my toddler. 

4. While the eggs are boiling, prepare an ice bath. Put about 10 ice cubes into a large bowl and fill with cold water. 

5. When your timer is up, carefully spoon the eggs into the ice bath. Let them sit for at least 5 minutes or until cool. 

6. Dry the eggs off with paper towels. They will stay fresh in your fridge for about a week. I like to pack 2 in sandwich bags to grab easily for breakfast during the week.

  1. We do this too! Except hard-boiled 🙂 Pieter used to eat Pop Tarts for breakfast and I told him he can no longer do that bc of the sugar (and everything else) so I started prepping eggs every Sunday for him – much healthier!

  2. We’ll have to give you some of our eggs this summer! The hens stop laying in the winter, but we get about 10 a day when the days are long!
