National Egg Day

Today is National Egg Day and let's be honest; every day should be National Egg Day! I love eggs! On this day I'm sharing one of my favorite childhood recipes, the Soft Boiled Egg. As a kid this was my favorite breakfast. I liked that my mom put my soft boiled eggs into little egg dishes and I cracked the egg open myself with the back of my spoon which she showed me how to do, and then added a little salt and pepper. To this day I eat soft boiled eggs. Once a week my neighbor Bella makes me soft boiled eggs while she tries to teach me French. Bella adds her own twist by serving the eggs with matzoh she has burnt on her gas stove with fresh sweet cream butter. I love to dip the matzoh into the egg yolk.

Serves 1


  • 1 egg
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Potato bread or matzoh
  1. Use a pin or sewing needle to poke a hole in the bread end of each egg. Place each egg into a small saucepan of gently boiling water. [each egg? I thought there was only 1 egg used]
  2. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes and drain.
  3. Run the egg very briefly under cold water, crack the top part of the egg, [what do you mean by this?] and place it in egg cup.
  4. Toast the slices of potato bread and spread them with salted butter. Cut the toast into strips and serve warm with the soft-boiled eggs.
