Soft-Cooked Eggs

You probably know hard-cooked eggs, but give soft-cooked eggs a try. With their rich, creamy interior, they're great over salads, pastas, and whole grains, as the runny, nutrient-rich yolk doubles as a silky dressing.

—Sidney Fry, Nutrition Editor

How to Make Soft-Cooked Eggs: Add water to a large saucepan to a depth of 3 inches; bring to a boil. Add eggs; boil 5 minutes and 30 seconds. Drain. Plunge eggs into ice water; let stand 5 minutes. Drain and peel. Cut in half for a pretty presentation.
