The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

One thing that bugs me more than anything is boiling eggs only to have them not peel properly, or not be done all the way. With the holidays coming up, I will probably be boiling a lot of eggs. So I have found a way to make the perfect boiled egg! No more throwing away half the egg inside the shell. Follow these few steps and you will not be left cussing while you peel eggs again!

Depending on how many eggs you are boiling will determine the size pot you need. I usually boil a full dozen, so I use my larger pot. Now you want to fill the pot with COLD water. You want the water to be above your eggs, then you want to turn the burner on high and bring the water to a rapid boil.

Once your water is boiling, turn the burner off, place a lid on your pot, and let sit for 12 minutes.

After you have let them site for 12 minutes you want to run them under cold water, the key is to get the eggs cold as soon as possible. Once you have them cooled happy peeling!

I have yet to have any issues with my eggs. Remember boiled eggs are only good in the fridge up to a week after you boiled them. Also, remember the rule when in doubt through it out.
