    Egg fans, try THIS!

    Primal Fuel
    So I am a huge egg eater - I go through dozens each week and one of my favorite methods of cooking them is to soft/medium boil the eggs so that I can easily remove the whites from the yolk and savor the creamy goodness. For the longest time I would BOIL my eggs, but recently discovered that you can actually STEAM eggs to get an even better result. Seriously, I didn't think you could steam an egg the same way you boil them, but it actually works, and it is extremely easy to de-shell also. All you need to do is get a steamer basket, set the water to a boil and then let the eggs steam away for roughly 7-10 minutes (depending on how cooked you like them). After that, take them out and cool them off and enjoy! I guarantee once you get the timing down you will never go back to the old way of boiling eggs again.
    Have fun!

    I steam my eggs also but w/ a slightly different technique. I put the eggs in the steamer basket before turning on the heat. Throw the lid on, put the flame to med-high and set the timer for 20 minutes. I usually just cool them w/ the sprayer nozzle on my faucet. Works great.

    Thanks for the tip. That's how I used to do my boiling technique - put the eggs in first, bring to a boil, let sit in hot water (burner off) for 7 minutes.
    Seriously, I'm never going back to those days again though (unless I find myself w/o a steamer)

    How does the egg differ after being steamed versus being boiled?

    I will stick to slightly boiled eggs (which on my kitchen setup is timed to 6mn 45 sec after water is boiling - yes, I put the eggs once water is boiling, which is a little tricky, and start timing just then). The reason is that the steaming method seems to take twice as long at the same heating setup, which sounds like a waste of energy ...

    Yeah that’s true steaming is just a waste of energy as it takes too much time in comparison to boiling.

    I have this:

    No more questionably-cooked eggs for me! This puppy does it all.

    I don't notice any difference in taste or texture. The biggest plus is that I have yet to have 1 egg that I had trouble peeling. I could boil a dozen eggs and never get all 12 to peel easily. My only issue is a couple of times I had my flame too low and I under cooked them. I don't mind a little bit of a runny yolk though.
