Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs

Nature's perfect sauce is an egg yolk - it sits at the top of the food porn hierarchy and can get you salivating in seconds just thinking about its velvety viscosity.  What's more basic, simple, and delicious than a perfectly soft boiled egg?  Everyone has eggs and should be able to boil water.  I found the following recipe in Tim Ferriss' The 4-Hour Chef.  Enjoy!


1 tsp - Baking Soda (optional)
2 - Eggs
Drizzle - Truffle Oil
Pinch - Salt

1) Fill a pot with water, add baking soda (it makes the egg easier to peel), and get the water boiling.
2) Gently add the eggs to the boiling water with a spoon and remove after 7 minutes.
3) Run the eggs over cold water (to stop the cooking process and make them easier to peel), crack them on a flat surface, and gently peel the shell off.
4) Season with truffle oil and salt.

Truffle oil is totally cheating, but it really compliments the egg yolk (I might have to make it for breakfast tomorrow).
