Put an egg on it, yes, that is what I often do to add protein to my meal. However, when it comes to using a boiled egg there are many different kinds, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, and the jammy yolk in-between one that's a perfect finish to your ramen. Here is your fail-proof guide to boiling an egg. 

Hard-Boiled Egg
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high, lower eggs in with a slotted spoon, cook for 12 minutes. Submerge in an ice bath for two minutes.

Jammy In-between Egg
This is the egg you find atop your ramen. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high, lower eggs in with a slotted spoon, cook for 7 1/2 minutes. Submerge in an ice bath for two minutes.

Soft-Boiled Egg
Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover the eggs by an inch with water. Set over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Turn off heat, cover and let rest for 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
