What You'll Need
- 2 Safest Choice™ pasteurized egg(s)
- Carefully arrange pasteurized eggs in a single layer in a saucepan, then add enough water to cover the eggs by at least 1 inch.
- Bring water to a rolling boil over high heat. A rolling boil is when the water has very large, fast breaking bubbles on the surface.
- Now remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let stand about 4 minutes for soft boiled eggs, which will be quite runny.
- If you prefer a firmer, yet still slightly runny yolk, let it stand 8 to 9 minutes, and for a hard-cooked egg leave it in the water 15 minutes.
- When egg reaches desired doneness, lift from the pot,then tap a spoon once or twice around the center of the egg. Crack the shell open and use a small spoon to scoop the egg from the shell.

The Raw Egg Risk
Safest Choice™ Eggs aren't just good for sunny side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
