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!
