I’m an egg person. I love eggs and only buy them in quantities of 18 or more because I go through them so quickly. I like them scrambled, over easy, poached and hard boiled. I love hard boiled eggs to eat plain, make into egg salad sandwiches, to eat with avocado and toast, and especially as deviled eggs. But hard boiled eggs are sometimes the most frustrating thing to perfect. Half the time the shells don’t come off or they peel off all the egg whites with it, or the yolks are soft boiled. But here is the perfect way to make hard boiled eggs. I’m not guaranteeing 100% every time, but it hasn’t failed me yet!
- Lay the eggs in the bottom of a large sauce pan – or smaller pan if you’re making fewer.
- Cover the eggs with cool/cold water enough to cover by 1 inch
- Bring to a hard boil over medium heat
- Let boil just a minute then cover the pan and remove from heat
- Keep covered for 12 minutes then plunge the eggs into ice water – this stops the cooking process
- Refrigerate when cool
The eggs peel easy and the yolks are always perfectly hard boiled. Hopefully this helps make your hard boiled egg process much easier!
