  • As many eggs as you want to make
  • Cold water


  • Place eggs in a single layer on the bottom of your pot and add in enough cold water to come about one inch above the eggs.
  • Bring the water to a boil, turn off the heat, pop on a lid and set your timer for 9 minutes.
  • Drain the water and then if you want to attempt to make your eggs easy-peelers, submerge the eggs in an ice bath for a few minutes to cool.
  • Peel and enjoy.



Peeled hard boiled eggs can be stored in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for up to one week.
