From: I learned how to make coddled eggs from my grandmother.
First, you need an egg coddler, or several. They look like this.
Spray the inside of each coddler with cooking spray. Then dust it with salt and pepper. Next drop in one egg and screw on the top.
Lower into a pot of boiling water. The water should reach the edge of the coddler tops like this.
Boil until egg is cooked through (about 7-9 minutes). To lift out of the pot, use a hook or a fork twine. Unscrew the tops using a dish towel or oven mit and scoop out the coddled eggs.
Coddled eggs make great toppings for toasted English muffins, which is how I like to eat them.
