Did you really just ask how he made a soft boiled egg and did he really post a link to some wacky japanese crap?

ye gods, we are truly fallen as a culture. soft-boiled eggs were standard breakfast fare until the 70s in this country, yet within one generation you have become completely ignorant of them and have to relearn about it from japan.

God save us all.

My method is another Alton Brown creation.
1. Load the eggs into an electric kettle
2. Fill kettle with water about 1" (2.5 cm) above the level of the eggs. (Make sure to stay below the max fill line of your kettle.)
3. Turn on kettle. It should shut off automatically when the water temp hits boiling.
4. Let them sit in the hot water. 8 minutes for slightly runny yolks (as above), 10-12 for hard boil (YMMV).
5. Pour out excess water, and place eggs in a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking.

Because everyone should like things how YOU like them.

But then that wouldn't be a hard boiled egg, now would it?

Wait - So your claim is that everyone who as grown up after the 70's is a retard?

OK - Well, I'm not arguing too hard against that one...
