Five Ways To Cook Your Sous Vide Eggs

For those of you out there that aren't Foodies, you may be wondering what sous vide eggs are and why they are all the rage. This type of egg has a few names, which includes slowly boiled and the 63-degree egg. But let's stick with their proper technical name, which comes from the kitchen gadget that is used to cook them.

Sous vide eggs have been a popular treat in restaurants for nearly a decade, but they are quickly becoming a dining delight in homes as well.

How to Prepare Sous Vide Eggs

If you're planning to start cooking sous vide eggs in your home, you need to have the right equipment on hand.

Sous vide cooking requires the food items, a sealed bag, and a kitchen devise that allows you to cook your foods at a specific temperature in submerged in water. There are plenty of sous vide circulators on the market right now for your shopping pleasure. Of course, you may have already gotten one for Christmas last year.

Sous vide eggs don't need the sealed plastic bag since they already come in a sealed container (the eggshell). There is more than one way to cook a sous vide egg; you'll find that out if you spend any time researching recipes online.

 If you're ready for easier and better eggs, here are 5 recipes you really should try.

The Food Lab's recipe for sous vide eggs is one of the most talked about recipes for this type of egg. You start with your sous vide cooker set at 143 degrees F. Cook your eggs for 45 minutes at this temperature.

You'll also need a medium-sized pot with simmering water.

You'll gently crack your eggs into a bowl, then use a perforated spoon to gently separate the whites before gently placing the egg into the simmering water for just one minute. The extra cook time helps set the whites.

Want a break from the egg whites? You can make a great sous vide yolk with your cool kitchen gadget. The yolk is the tastiest part of the egg and a lightly done yolk makes a great topping for a slice of toast.

The recipe for sous vide yolks is somewhat similar, at least in temperature, as the regular sous vide egg recipe. Start with the cooker set at 143 degrees F. You'll need to gently crack open a few eggs and scoop up the yolks (without breaking them). Each yolk needs to be sealed in a separate bag, cooking them for one hour.

Sous vide eggs are much like a soft-boiled egg anyway, but this recipe calls for one less step. If you prefer to have your eggs soft and runny, this is the recipe for you.

 For this one, set the water at 146 degrees F. Cook your egg for 45 minutes. Unlike the first recipe for sous vide eggs, this one doesn't require the extra time in the water after you break the egg.

If you're ready to try a new way of making hard-boiled eggs, there is a recipe using the sous vide cooker to make a hard-boiled option that is less rubbery, with a softer bite. These seem to peel as annoyingly, however, as standard hard-boiled eggs.

Set your cooker at 170 degrees F and gently place your eggs into the pot. Cook for one hour. Remove the eggs and place them in ice water for 15 minutes. The ice bath is said to help the boiled eggs peel easier, with less mess.

If you're more of a scrambled eggs kind of person, you can make some delicious fluffy scrambles right in your sous vide cooker. You need eggs and a plastic bag.

Set your cooker at 165 degrees F. While that's warming up you can crack your eggs into a dish and whisk them until they're well scrambled. Seal them in a zipper bag and place them in the water. They'll be ready for your consumption in 30 minutes, but you need to agitate them every ten minutes (to make them “scrambled”).

What to Do with Those Sous Vide Eggs

Now that you have five different options for delicious sous vide eggs, what are you going to make to go with them? Sous vide eggs are great for any meal of the day; you can even make some deviled eggs with the hard-boiled eggs and enjoy them as a snack or chop them up to throw on a salad. Sous vide eggs are great with avocado toast too!
