My favorite part of this article is the cool chart, which shows you what a egg looks like boiled for varying minutes, as well as links to recipes that suit each level of cooked egg. It’s everything you ever wanted to know about perfect soft and hard boiled eggs…and then some! Check out the chart and article for yourself.
