In our house, 'comfort food' is a simple dish we call "Soft Boiled Eggs", but the rest of the world refers to as 3 minute Eggs.
First, set a pot of water on the stove to boil. Find a suitable bowl (to eat out of), get three pieces of white sandwich bread, break the bread into small pieces into the bowl (about 20 pieces per slice of bread), salt to taste, pepper to taste, and add two to three pats of butter on top.
Meanwhile, the water is coming to a rapid boil.
Set the timer on the microwave over the stove to 3 minutes.
Take three eggs out of the refrigerator and when the water is at a rapid, roiling boil, use a spoon to gently insert the 3 eggs into the water.
Hit start on the timer.
Go to your Keurig machine to make a cup of coffee while you wait for the longest 3 minutes EVER to transpire to exhaust themselves.
When the timer dings, take the pot over to the sink and pour the water into the side of the sink with the dirty dishes in it (kind of a pre-dishwasher wash) while running cold water from the tap into the pot. This stops the eggs from cooking inside and should cool the eggs so you can handle them.
Crack the eggs open, scoop out the insides over the bread, salt, pepper and butter, making sure to NOT get eggshell into the bowl. Soft Boiled Eggs are supposed to be SOFT, not crunchy.
Once all three eggs are in the bowl, mix thoroughly, and serve.
I usually will try to make these for Grannie at least once on the weekend.
