How To Hard Boil an Egg

It took me a long time to learn how to hard boil an egg. Much longer than I care to admit. It sounds like it should be easy, right? I mean, how hard is it to boil water with something in it? If you ask former me, very hard! After much trial and many errors, I have the secret to success!

 

How to hard boil an egg.

Step 1. Put cold eggs in an empty pan.

Step 2. Fill the pan with cold water until the eggs are covered by about a half inch.

Step 3. If you have a handy dandy Egg Timer like mine, toss it in… it’s fun to watch it change color as your eggs cook.

Step 4. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Step 5. After the water boils, turn off the heat, and leave the eggs in the water on the stove for about 20 minutes.

Step 6. Run cold water over the eggs until cool.

Step 7. Refrigerate eggs until you’re ready to use them.
Voila! Presto Change-o! Your hard-boiled eggs are ready to go!
