When my ex-husband, Keith, was a little boy and feeling ill, his mother used to make him “chicky eggs” which consists of soft-boiled eggs, butter or margarine, and crumbled Ritz crackers. Now that Keith’s gone, it’s become my job to make the chicky eggs for Daniel. He’s not sick, he just likes them and since I had Ritz crackers in the house for something else, he suddenly wanted them. I was never able to get the eggs quite right until we got this egg timer that goes right in the pan. I cook the eggs halfway between soft and medium which allows me to cut them in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon.
