Here is our perfect egg experiment: boil time for a very soft egg is 3 minutes and 30 seconds. For soft egg is 4 minutes and 10 seconds. And for hard egg is 6 minutes. We use standard small eggs for this recipe.


  1. 1Put eggs in a small saucepan filled with cold water. Bring water to a boil. We boil our eggs for 3 minutes and 30 seconds for soft and runny center.
  1. 1Roughly slice the tomatoes and onion. In a saute pan, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Saute tomato and onion until soft and slightly caramelized, about 3 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. 2Toast and butter the bread. Top with soft-boiled eggs and onion tomato ragu. Serve immediately.
