What’s A Jammy Egg?
Jammy eggs, also known as soft boiled eggs or 7-minute eggs, is a boiled egg with the egg yolk being a soft, jam-like filling. The whites of the egg are firm and cooked all the way thru but the inside has slightly runny yolks. The egg whites are cooked through and the inside yolk is soft and runny. The texture of the yolk is similar to jam and has a jammy texture.
Are Jammy Eggs the Same as a Soft Boiled Egg?
Jammy eggs are the same as soft boiled eggs. The egg whites are cooked through but the egg yolks are still soft and runny. They differ from hard boiled eggs because the center of the eggs is cooked through and solid in hard-boiled eggs.
How long does it take to cook Jammy Eggs?
Jammy eggs are also known as 7 minute eggs because the cooking time for the eggs is just 7 minutes in the boiling water.
Is Eating Jammy Eggs Safe?
When you are wondering if soft boiled eggs are safe to eat, it falls into the same category as dippy eggs. Soft boiled eggs are safe to eat as they are cooked with heat. I do suggest using farm fresh eggs over store bought eggs if possible.
Can I make the eggs have runnier yolks?
If you want the egg yolks to be runnier then you will want to shorten the cook times. I do not suggest cooking the eggs for less than 5 and half minutes. In our house the perfect egg is cooked for the full 7 minutes. We prefer to have jammy yolks over a more liquidy yolk that comes with a shorter cook time.
Are Eggs Keto?
Yes, eggs are a great source of protein and fat, making them perfect for the keto diet. One large egg has six grams of protein and five grams of fat. These jammy eggs are perfect for an easy breakfast or simple snack.
Can I Make Jammy Eggs in Advance?
Yes, you can make this recipe in advance. Simply cook the eggs and then store them in the fridge for up to a week. When you’re ready to eat, simply reheat and enjoy.
To reheat the eggs, simply place them in a hot water bath for two minutes or until heated through.
Should Soft Boiled Eggs Be Eaten Hot or Cold?
Jammy eggs taste great hot or cold. If you prefer your eggs warmer, simply reheat in a hot water bath for two minutes before eating.
What toppings go on Jammy Eggs?
While these eggs are perfect on their own, and I love dipping freshly cooked bacon in the runny yolk you can add things like a sprinkle of salt and pepper or some everything bagel seasoning on top of them for added flavor.
What to Serve with Keto Jammy Eggs
I like to serve them with cauliflower hash browns, air fryer bacon and some low carb fruit as my sides. Add in some keto coffee, like Low carb Iced Caramel Macchiato, keto dalgona coffee or bullet coffee and you have a complete breakfast that is filling and delicious!
How to store cooked soft boiled eggs
Peel the eggs but do not cut them until you are ready to eat them. Place the jammy eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Can I freeze 7 minute eggs?
While you can freeze the eggs, I do not recommend it. The texture changes and it will not be the same. I do not recommend freezing jammy eggs.
How to Peel Jammy Eggs
After the cooked eggs have sat in the ice water remove them when they are cool enough to handle. Then crack a cooked egg one at a time, by tapping the egg shell with a gentle tap on the counter or the side of a bowl and peel the shell off of the egg. Discard the egg shell.
