Sous Vide Soft Boiled Egg

Anova Culinary

This recipe is so easy with an Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker. Just gently place the egg in the water set to 146ºF and let it cook for 45 minutes. A soft boiled egg is perfect with toast, but we like to put them on just about everything we eat (seriously).
