Image Description: A boiled egg is featured in this photograph; soft boiled eggs are normally served in an egg cup with a piece of toast for dipping into the soft yolk on the side. There are many opinions on the best way to achieve a soft or hard boiled egg; some say let the water boil before adding the eggs, while others suggest letting the eggs come to a boil in the water, then suddenly reducing the heat, allowing them to slowly cook in order to preserve a softer yolk. There are also a variety of ways to remove the shell; immersing the eggs in cold water for a few minutes seems to be the most popular method, as the the coldness causes the contents of the egg to shrink slightly, making the shells come off easily. Eggs are a great source of protein and are an extremely popular breakfast food in many countries and cultures.
