immerse the egg in a small cup of tepid water to bring the egg to room temperature.
set a timer for 4 minutes but do not press start.
bring the 4-6 cups of water to boil in a small pot. once boiling, pour in the vinegar and stir. drop the egg into the water and push the whites together gently with a spoon.
quickly remove the pot from heat and cover with a lid.
do not touch. toast your bread if you need to do something.
when the timer goes off, remove the egg using a slotted spoon and blot it with a paper towel (BE GENTLE!).
season with salt, pepper, and paprika. dip your dry toast =).
