How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs

(3 Votes)

Here's the perfect way to make hard-boiled eggs. No green yolks or rubbery whites this way!

What You'll Need:
What To Do:
  1. Place a single layer of eggs in a saucepan and cover them with about an inch of cold water; bring to a boil.
  2. Once they come to a boil, remove saucepan from heat, cover it, and let it sit about 12 minutes for large eggs.
  3. Run them under cold water to cool them; continue to cool them further with some ice.
  4. Gently tap each egg until the shell is finely cracked, then peel under running water.

 Did you know? 

  • Eggs are all-natural and have high-quality protein and 13 essential vitamins and minerals in varying amounts, all for just 70 calories.
  • Eggs are affordable, quick and versatile, and research shows that eating high-quality protein foods for breakfast, like eggs, can help you and your family feel more satisfied and energized throughout the day.
  • At an average cost of 15 cents apiece, eggs offer a great bang for your buck, providing one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein per serving. 

Here are some tips:

  • Adjust your cooking time according to the size of your eggs.
  • Hard-boiled eggs in the shell can be refrigerated for up to one week. Hard-boiled eggs out of the shell should be used immediately.
  • Prepare a dozen hard-boiled eggs on Sunday so you’ll have an all-natural, high-quality protein option on hand for your family during the busy week ahead, either for an on-the-go breakfast, lunch, or after-school snack.
