Coddled egg with mashed potatoes a.k.a the egg slut

This recipe is so simple and delicious! Be adventurous with your vegetable--try garlic mash potato, parsnip purée, cauliflower purée, the possibilities are endless! Just make sure it's well seasoned. How wide your mason jar is may affect the steaming time. For example, a narrow mouth jar will have a thicker layer of egg whites to cook compared with a wide mouth jar. Add about 1 extra minute if using narrow mouth jar. Adjust your steam time accordingly depending how soft and runny you like the yolk. If this is your first time making the recipe, time and steam 1 jar first to test.
