Q: Boiled eggs  I like my eggs neither hard nor soft, but cooked until the center is firm but still creamy. Add eggs to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute and then turn the heat off for 10 minutes (and go do something else! You're busy!). Run under cold water to prevent burns when peeling. These are delicious on "entree salads" such as Chef Salad or Salad Nicoise.  Newburgh, NY --  Rebecca Foster Reply 3 Jul 2002 (Ref:0736)
