Bring me to brunch, and I’ll be the girl ordering the eggs benny – Florentine, to be exact. I just can’t say no. The
Because of that, I made it a mission to create a better-for-you version of the beloved eggs benny. But before we get started, I should mention that my better-for-you version isn’t a true eggs benedict, but instead, a healthy breakfast that delivers the same satisfaction without the guilt.
Enter the soft-boiled egg. One of the reasons most people order eggs benedict at brunch is because poached eggs can feel like a mystery to make, so it’s a delightful treat when you’re eating out. But it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Soft-boiled eggs are a much easier way to get the feel of a poached egg but without the hard work. All it takes is a pot of boiling water, an egg, and six minutes of your morning. A rinse under cold water and a gentle peel, and you’re on your way.
Soft-boiled eggs go great over a salad, avocado toast, or this better-for-you benny.

Tip: If you’re a fan of avocado, try a soft-boiled egg over avocado toast. Toast the bread, top with half of a smashed avocado, a drizzle of olive oil, soft-boiled egg, crushed red pepper, a grind of garlic, a grind of pepper, and a sprinkle of coarse salt.
