Soft-cooked eggs (also known as soft-boiled eggs) are a favourite! We like to dip toast strips into the soft yolks, hence the name Dipping Eggs.
Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Pour enough water into the saucepan to cover eggs by at least 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Bring water to a boil over high heat. Immediately remove pan from heat to stop boiling. Cover saucepan and let eggs stand in water for 2 to 4 minutes until cooked as desired.
Drain water; immediately run cold water over eggs to cool them a little. Place eggs in egg cups.
Toast bread; spread with butter. Cut toast into 1-inch (2.5 cm) strips.
Crack tops off eggs with knife. Serve toast strips with eggs for dipping into soft yolks.
