Good Afternoon! I’m coming at ya with a promise to deliver the perfect remedy for hard-boiling eggs.
Cooking eggs is something I have not had the best success with until recently, thanks to a friend of Scott’s sharing her secrets with me. I too, needed major help in this department.
There seems to be about five hundred different methods to boiling eggs, and this is just my personal full proof advice. But, for what it’s worth, following exactly what I share below hasn’t steered me wrong yet.
How to Make the Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg
1. Fill a medium sized pot with enough cold water to cover about two inches over where the eggs will lay.
2. Turn stovetop on high and carefully place eggs in pot immediately after it’s placed on the burner.
Be sure not to put too many eggs in at once. You want to avoid having them stack on top of each other.
3. Make a layer of eggs across the bottom and the bring pot to a heavy boil.
4. Let eggs boil for 5 minutes on high, then switch the heat to medium. Boil for 10 more minutes.
5. Carefully drain water and put eggs in a Tupperware or bowl.
Use a spoon or a towel to grab the eggs. They will be extremely hot and could burn your fingers!
6. Put eggs in the refrigerator and let them cool overnight or at least for a couple of hours.
1. Try not to use fresh eggs. The best eggs for hard boiling are at least a week old.
3. Have trouble peeling hard boiled eggs? Try this awesome technique!
4. You can also try adding baking soda to the boiling water… but that isn’t always a reliable tip via The Kitchen.
5. An easy way to tell if you are overcooking them is to check the yolk color when they’re done. If they have a green or grey hint around the yellow, they’re overcooked.
6. Don’t try to cook too many eggs into one pot. If you plan to use a lot of eggs at once, definitely up your pot size so they aren’t crushing each other!
Enjoy them for breakfast, a healthy snack, or slice and dice them to add a little something in salads!
