What is a Jammy Egg?

If you have never heard of a jammy egg, let me introduce you to your new favorite egg. What is a jammy egg? It’s just another term for a soft-boiled egg with a runny yolk.

I’ve loved boiled eggs my whole life, but I recently discovered this method that delivers jammy hard-boiled eggs every single time. It used to be a happy accident when my boiled eggs turned out jammy, but now? We’ve cracked the secret.

The flavor and texture of the eggs is so much better with a soft, runny yolk. And, this method gets bonus points for requiring very little effort. That’s a win-win, in my book. Jammy eggs are fabulous as a snack with salt and pepper.

Hot Reuben Dip

Have we established well enough just how much my family enjoys Reubens? The idea of a hot Reuben dip might’ve been the easiest sell ever in the history of recipes we’ve tried.

My kids scraped this bowl clean just minutes after I set it in front of them. It was good that I had set aside a portion for Sean to try later, because there was nothing left at all by the time he made it to the kitchen.

Some foods are so basic, so incredibly simple, that it can be difficult to describe their awesomeness. That’s how I feel about cottage cheese with fruit. Two ingredients. Just TWO.

And yet, cottage cheese and berries have a permanent place in my refrigerator. Whether this is my breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a sweet bite after dinner, I eat this nearly every single day.

Cottage Cheese with Fruit

About a year ago, a friend mentioned to me how much he enjoyed eating cottage cheese with berries after his workouts. I hadn’t tried that combination before, never having been a huge fan of cottage cheese. (I was always a Greek yogurt girl before and usually with a bunch of other things added to it.)

If I’m being honest, the amount of protein in the cottage cheese was what finally got me to try it. Oh. My. Word. I had been missing out! (Sorry, Lynne, for all the times I messed with you for enjoying cottage cheese so much. Turns out I just hadn’t tried the right combination.)
