Soft Boiled Eggs

Dan's dad used to make him and his sisters soft-boiled eggs in the morning before school, and today Dan offered to make them for us. I have no recollection of ever eating a soft boiled egg before, so I was excited to try it out. He used my ancient copy of The New Cookbook to determine cooking times for the eggs, and it seems like they were a bit long, as the yolks were pretty much cooked. So next time, we'll reduce the cooking time a bit to get that runny yolk, perfect for dipping toast in (or so I've seen in movies). The toast we made today was the bottom halves of a couple hamburger buns, which I toasted, buttered, and cut into quarters.
