Hard boiling an egg can be, well, hard. While some people wonder how to hard boil the perfect egg, others strach their heads when it comes to finding an easy way to peel eggs. So we're gonna make it easy and show you how to make hard boiled eggs without a second thought. You won't find any green yolks or rubbery whites when you make hard boiled eggs with these tips. Instead you'll learn to easily peel an egg and uncover a perfectly cooked and creamy yolk with a tender egg white.
What You'll Need:
- saucepan with lid
- eggs (preferably not fresh)
- cold water
What To Do:
- Place a single layer of eggs in a saucepan and cover them with about an inch of cold water; bring to a boil.
- Once they come to a boil, remove saucepan from heat, cover it, and let it sit about 12 minutes for large eggs.
- Run them under cold water to cool them; continue to cool them further with some ice.
- Gently tap each egg until the shell is finely cracked, then peel under running water.
