Easy Soft Boiled Eggs

I love soft boiled eggs, my grandmother made them for me as a child. She would boil them, cut them in half with a butter knife, (shell and all) and take the knife around the egg shell scooping them into a bowl. It was awesome to watch her as a kid in the kitchen. She always did everything with ease or at least she made it look that way! She will always be the reason I have my love for tomato's and birds!
