Perfectly Hard Boiled Eggs

July 26, 2016



Hard boiled eggs are great for breakfast or just a snack.  I use them for a number of recipes.  I put them on my french salad, but there are so many ways that they can be used.  I have come to realize that knowing how to do a good hard boiled egg is a must.  I have found that this method is the best way to boil eggs!  

Simply place eggs (I use large ones) in the bottom of a saucepan and pour cold water to cover the eggs.  


You want about one inch water above the eggs.


 Place the saucepan on stove top and bring to a boil.  


Take your saucepan off the heat and place a lid on the saucepan.  You then let your eggs sit for 18 minutes (less time if you like a less cooked egg).  After 18 minutes, you drain off the hot water and run cold water over the eggs to stop the cooking.  You now have perfectly boiled eggs!  I like this method because you do not get any cracked eggs, and this method consistently puts out a perfectly boiled egg.  Bon Appetit!
