Figured I would give this a shot. My son thought it would be fun to try it out. He likes over easy eggs to dip his toast in so thats what we were shooting for. Cooked whites and a runny yolk. We dropped the eggs into a pot of boiling water for 3min then directly into an ice water bath for one min. Then into this sous vide pot set at 145° for 45min.

They came out pretty good. But man were they a pain to peel lol. The white was firm and the yolk was runny but not too runny. It was thick. We also had some maple sausage patties and cinimon Apple brioche French toast

It was a fun experiment to do with my son and the outcome was delicious. Thanks for looking!

Looks like a tasty meal! I know vinegar added helps soften the shell, but not sure where it’d be added in the process with Sous vide. Maybe someone can chime in that knows!

BTW, I love cooking with my kids and they love it too... whether it’s the smoker/grill, cast iron, Sous vide, etc. Awesome your son was involved... Nice work!

Nice looking breakfast. I’m not a big breakfast sweets guy (pancakes/waffles etc etc)...but I really wanna tear that french toast to pieces! It looks phenomenal!

Haven’t gotten around to using the SV for eggs yet. I’ve been making some in the Instant Pot for pickling with great results.

Glad to see your son is trying new things and experimenting with food. He’s gonna be a hell of a cook!

Thanks! I have read that somewhere before. Never tried it. The part about these that was so bad is they were so soft it was hard to handle them without damaging the white. And they were pretty fresh eggs. I know the more fresh they are the harder it is to peel.

Thanks! I'm not usually a sweets guy myself. But the kids like that stuff so if thats what we are making thats what I'll eat. I'm more of a steak and eggs kind of guy...or breakfast sandwich. Chorizo and eggs is always nice too. My son does enjoy doing things in the kitchen. And kids are always more likely to try new things if they were involved in the whole process.

With soft boiled eggs it’s easier to cut the top off and serve in the shell. If you really want to get all the peel off, strike the side of the egg near the bottom with a knife (watch your hands and fingers if you’re holding the egg. Then work the peel up. An help yo peel under running cold water.
For perfect soft boiled eggs I wouldn’t waste the effort using Sous vide. 6-6 1/2 minutes gentle boil. 2 minutes in an ice bath. Then peel.

Baldwin's link has the info below.

Perfect Egg
The custardy texture of the white and yolk of the so called "perfect egg" is caused by the denaturing of the egg protein conalbumin at 148°F (64.5°C). In Figure 4.1, we observe that the denaturing of the protein ovotransferrin at 144°F (62°C) causes the egg white to coagulate (This, 2006, Chap 3).

Place egg in a 148°F (64.5°C) water bath for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Crack egg and serve immediately.
Pictures of eggs cooked at different temperatures.

Figure 4.1: Pictures of intact eggs cooked in a water bath for 75 minutes at temperatures ranging from 136°F (57.8°C) to 152°F (66.7°C). From left-to-right and top-to-bottom, the water bath temperature was 136.0°F (57.8°C), 138.0°F (58.9°C), 140.0°F (60.0°C), …, 152°F (66.7°C).

Pasteurized in Shell Egg
While only 1 in 10,000–20,000 intact shell eggs contain hazardous levels of Salmonella enteritidis (McGee, 2004; Snyder, 2006), Grade A eggs were implicated in 82% of outbreaks between 1985 and 1991 (Mishu et al., 1994). Therefore, when working with highly susceptible or immune compromised populations, pasteurized eggs should always be used in dishes which call for raw eggs (e.g., chocolate mousses).

Place egg in a 135°F (57°C) water bath for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes (Schuman et al., 1997).

Pasteurized intact eggs can be stored and used just like raw eggs. While the properties of the egg yolk are unaffected, the egg white is milky compared to a raw egg. Whipping time is significantly longer for pasteurized eggs, but the final whip volume is nearly the same (Schuman et al., 1997).

Great looking breakfast. While I'm not real big on sweets (I do have my moments) I would absolutely tie into some of that french toast. Nice experimentation on the eggs! Like.

Thanks gator! When I baught that loaf of brioche they had some other flavors as well. A braided chocolate and a braided vanilla. I might try one of those next time we do French toast.

No but when i was trying to find info on soft boiled eggs I saw them. Look like little mini quiches. I'll have to give them a try.
