oeuf a la coque / Soft Boiled Eggs
Good morning!Here is your typical Sunday brunch in France with some french soft-boiled eggs.The egg from the shell, l'oeuf à la coque is a soft-boiled egg that you eat directly in its shell. We simply dip long squared pieces of bread in it and the rest with a spoon.Some like butter on the bread, others even add Hamm, grilled or not, it all depends on your preference.This makes for a very authentic Brunch when the family gathers during the weekends.Add some croissants and chocolatine, jam, and a loaf of bread with butter, maybe a café au lait or a thé, and here you are!Bon appétit!
- 1 egg
- 1 slice of bread
- Gather the ingredients. Fill ¾ of a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Cut the bread into thin long square slices ( les mouillettes)
- To avoid cracking, make a little hole in the eggshell with a needle.
- Then, put the egg into the boiling water for 3min if the egg is at room temperature, about 3,5 min if it is cold from the fridge.
- when the time is up, take it out, then place it on a stable stand.
- Start slowly craking the shell from the top, by knocking on it.
- Peel the shell of the top, maximum until the middle. Then you open it with a spoon and start to take the white from the top until you reach the yolk.
- Now it is time to dip the bead and savor your egg from the shell. Et voilà!
