Coddle this! My eggs never come out right!
Oh, egg coddler. You seemed so cool when I first heard about you! And no matter how many different ways I try, the eggs I entrust to you are always returned... Well-- just odd. Usually the yolks are cooked all the way on the bottom, and runny on the top, which in itself would be tolerable if the white part weren't also still clear and runny. Gross! I've tried hotter water, not so hot water, longer time in the water, shorter time in the water. Nothing I do make these eggs come out the way I expect: fluffy whites, slightly runny yolks, and consistent throughout for both. I have a two-egg coddler into which I crack two eggs, after buttering the inside, and then into a pot of boiling water up to the lip it goes, while I turn down the heat to a simmer. I usually leave them in there for anywhere between 7 and 15 minutes and nothing works. Please someone help me get these eggs coddled!
