Do you love eggs for breakfast? Do you like a soft or hard center? Well you are going to love this little trick. It has changed my life. Ok, maybe not, but it sure has made breakfast a lot easier. No work. I mean none!! I love eggs, but rarely have time to stand at the stove and keep an eye on them, stir them etc. These you just leave alone until the timer rings!
And I get the perfect egg center every time! So how do I do it? I steam the eggs. I turn on a steamer pot, put a ramekin or silicone baking cup into the steaming basket, crack my egg into it, put some foil over the top to protect it from getting wet (the condensation from the steam), then steam for 5-10 minutes depending on how soft I want the yolk to be.

I love using my silicone baking cups for this because they come away clean, and I have tons of them so I can make breakfast for the whole family at the same time. I just spray a little bit of coconut oil or cooking spray into them, and crack the egg in, then steam.
The trick is figuring out how long to steam for. The longer you steam your eggs for, the harder the center will be. Here is what I recommend: Start by steaming for about 5 minutes. So turn your water on, and let it come to a boil, then crack your eggs into your silicone baking cups, cover the baking cups with foil and put the steamer basket into the pot. And put the lid on. After five minutes, check them. Take a set of tongs, and lift the foil off, and wiggle the cup a little. If the whites shake, cook a minute or two longer. If the center shakes, then it will be runny. So decide how runny you want it, and cook accordingly. I like it to be runny, so I cook for about 7 minutes total.
