Soft Boiled Jammy Eggs

Soft Boiled Jammy Eggs feature a soft yolk with a spreadable jammy texture. They are easy to make and go perfectly in a bowl of ramen, in an egg salad sandwich, on a salad, or on top of avocado toast topped with truffle salt -- the list goes on! All you need is a little salt and pepper on top for the perfect bite.

  • 6 eggs at room temperature
  • Ice
  • Water


  • Make sure the eggs are at room temperature - One of the most important things to note about boiling eggs is that the eggs need to be at room temperature. If the eggs are cold and right out of the fridge, they will crack when lowered into the hot water. If you don't have time to let your eggs get to room temperature on their own, fill a bowl with warm water (not hot) and let them sit in the water for a few minutes to expedite the temperature change.
    6 eggs
  • Boil the water - To make the eggs, you will first fill a sauce pan or small pot with water.  Wait a few minutes as you bring the water to a boil on medium heat.  
  • Cook the eggs - Using tongs or a slotted spoon, carefully lower the eggs in the water and cook for 7 minutes.  You will want to lower the heat so that the water simmers. Most importantly, set a timer for 7 minutes to be exact. Every minute counts when you boil eggs!
  • Fill a bowl with ice water - As the eggs cook on the stovetop, fill a bowl with cold water and ice.  The bowl of ice water will stop the eggs from cooking and will preserve the soft yolk.

  • Cool the eggs - Once the timer pings, use the tongs or spoon to remove the eggs from the pot and place them in the bowl of ice water to cool.  Let the eggs sit in the ice water for a few minutes before you peel them.
  • Crack the eggshells - Using a spoon, lightly tap each egg to crack the shell.  The shell should easily peel off once the egg is cooled.



You can refrigerate Soft Boiled Jammy Eggs in an air tight container for 2 days.  Here are some containers I recommend: OXO Pop Containers, Glass Meal Prep Containers, Glass Food Containers.

Top Tip

Figure out what you want to make with your jammy eggs before you start making them so your eggs are ready at the same time as your other food and you can enjoy everything hot and fresh.
