General Tips

  1. A temperature around 142-143F is understood to be ideal for the perfect runny yolks, but the egg whites are not fully set. They do not begin to totally set until 147 F.

  2. To get around this, you can poach the egg in gently boiling water for a minute or two to firm up the egg whites.
