What You'll Need
2Davidson's 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.
