Medium Boiled Eggs
Medium-boiled eggs are boiled eggs that has a slightly firm yolk with a little bit of run in it, similar to that of an over-medium fried egg. The whites on a medium-boiled egg are firm like a hard-boiled egg. These eggs are for folks who want a completely cooked white and a slightly runny yolk. This is the internal temperature in which I prefer when eating boiled eggs.
How Long Does It Take to Medium Boil an Egg?
To achieve a perfect medium-boiled egg, the egg should be cooking in rolling boiling water for 7-9 minutes. Within this range of cooking time, the whites will be cooked. It is always vital to immediately chill the eggs. So that they stop cooking.
