- 2 eggs, (I used medium 50g eggs)
- 2 litres water, (To fill to the 2L mark or slightly under, not over)
Recipe is created for
Fill jug to the 2L indicator with room temp water.
*Dont fill above the line, I dont bother weighing, I just ensure i dont go higher than the line. Slightly under is also fine.
Heat @ 7minutes, 70degreees, speed 3.5
When water is finished;
Place 2 cold eggs* in basket and pop basket in the bowl.
Cook 12minutes, 70degrees, speed 3.5
Remove from water and run under water for 30 seconds or so to cool.
This is the part most people find tricky so here is how i do it.
Tap the larger end of the egg so it forms slight cracks, do it gently as you dont want to smash the shell. Peel back small sections of the egg shell at a time. keep going until your egg shell resembles something like the picture, a hole about the size of a 50c coin. Turn upside down onto plate/ toast etc and it *should* plonk right out. If it doesnt you can either peel back little bits more shell at a time, OR you can run a spoon around the inside and manouver it out that way. It may take a few times before you master the egg plonking hehe.
Removing from shell
**I've been giving advice on this recipe on my TM5 HINTS TIPS AND RECIPES page on FB. Some people are having great success and others are still struggling.
If i am using jumbo size eggs I increase the time cooking eggs to 12.5 minutes.
I have not tried to cook more than 2 eggs at a time.
It is okay if the water doesn't quite reach 70c in the first warm up, i have never had a problem.
Most importantly, experiment, if it isn't cooked to perfection for your tastebuds/ preferences then reduce/ increase cooking time by 30seconds each time until you find your favourite consistency.
Don't give up, this is such an easy way to do eggs, i do it a few times a week and i never have a fail anymore. Its no mess, no vinegars, no spraying with oil. Its just easy.
*I use cold eggs because being in QLD i feel its too warm to leave eggs in cupboard. If you use room temp eggs, id reduce cooking time. Maybe this week ill try it with room temp eggs and give you guys a guide to work with.
