Eggs cooked with butter

This is a special preparation from the Irish kitchen. By rubbing butter on the eggs, they become incredibly creamy as the butter soaks through the porous egg shell into the egg itself.

As needed:



Preparation method

  • Rub a layer of butter onto the eggs.
  • Marinate the eggs in the butter for at least 24 hours.
  • Cook the eggs as you like.

Cooking times depend on the size of the egg (S-M-L-XL), but here are a few guidelines:

  • 2 to 3 minutes for oeufs à la coque (as these cannot be peeled they should be presented in the shell).
  • 4 to 5 minutes for soft-boiled eggs eaten out of the shell.
  • 6 to 8 minutes for soft-boiled eggs that can be peeled.
  • 8 to 10 minutes for eggs with a solid white, but a creamy yolk.
  • 10 to 12 minutes for hard-boiled eggs.

Serving suggestions

  • As a snack.
  • As a component in a lunch dish.
  • In a composition with truffle and potato mousseline.
