  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Pot of water


  • Crack the egg into a small bowl.
  • Bring a medium pot of water to a gentle boil. Add the vinegar and stir the water so that it moves in a circular motion. Gently drop the egg into the water, give the water one more gentle stir, and cook 3 1/2 to 4 minutes.
  • Scoop the egg out with a slotted spoon and test for doneness, and serve.
