How To Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs
Here’s an easy and proven method to produce the perfect hard-boiled eggs that are firm yet with tender whites and moist, creamy yolks.
Place eggs in a pot. Cover with cold water until the eggs are covered by about 1 inch (or 2 centimeters) of water.
Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once boiling, take off the heat.
Cover and cook for about 4 to 16 minutes depending on preference; for soft-boiled, 4 to 6 minutes while 8 to 10 minutes for medium-boiled and 12 to 16 minutes for hard-boiled. In the meantime, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water, creating an ice bath.
Once eggs reach the desired cook-time, immediately remove the eggs from the pot and place them in the ice bath. Allow eggs to cool for an out 10 to 15 minutes.
To peel, lightly tap the eggs on a flat surface, then gently roll back and forth (taking extra care with soft-boiled eggs).
Pull away the loosened shell and peel any remaining pieces. Serve as is or incorporate into your favorite recipe that requires hard-boiled eggs.
