Hard boiled eggs are a STAPLE in my kitchen. I always have them on hand. They’re a simple, protein-packed, whole food that everyone in my home loves to snack on.
A few years back (2009 to be exact) I posted an Egg 101 video. The intention was to explain some of the nutritional values of eggs and clear up any misconceptions. At the end of the video I shared my go-to technique for making hard-boiled eggs and thanks to my ‘not-always-so-friendly-brutally-honest-sometimes-obnoxious’ commenters on YouTube (who I love dearly) I realized that not everyone wants to wait 3 and a half minutes before learning the technique, so I decided to make the ‘express version’.
It’s short and sweet and to the point.
Do you have any favorite tips or tricks for perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs? Let’s hear all about them down in the comments below!
Perfectly Cooked Hard Boiled Eggs
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
- As many eggs as you want to make
- Cold water
Place eggs in the bottom of your pot. Add enough cold water to come about 1-inch above the eggs. (You can use as many eggs that fit in the pot without overcrowding).
Bring the water to a boil. Once you've got your boil, turn off the heat, pop on a lid and set your timer for 11 minutes.
Drain your the water and if you want to attempt to make your eggs 'easy-peelers' submerge the eggs in cold water for a few minutes (feel free to add ice cubes!).
