Water
1 tablespoon white vinegar
4 eggs (cold from refrigerator)

In deep buttered or non-stick surface skillet, boil water (2 to 3 inches deep) and vinegar. Break each egg into a shallow dish. Slip eggs into gently boiling water. Quickly spoon hot water over each egg until film forms over yolk. Reduce heat to keep water just simmering; simmer 3 to 4 minutes until eggs are to desired doneness. Remove eggs with slotted spoon. Trim any irregularities from the egg white to make a nice shape, if desired. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper.
