Perfect Hard-boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are a wonderful food. Easily portable, high in protein, and good on their own or as part of a larger dish. I've even eaten hard-boiled eggs on pizza (and it was pretty good).

Unfortunately, when the eggs are hard to peel, this yummy, easy food becomes an absolute pain in the neck.

There is, however, a right way to boil eggs. Who knew?
  1. Arrange eggs in pan so they are not touching.
  2. Cover with cold water.
  3. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove eggs from pan and place in a bowl filled with ice water.
  6. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from water, dry, and peel or store.
Using this method, even my 4 year old can easily peel her own eggs without losing most of the eggwhite with the shell.

Happy boiling!

  1. Thanks for this tip! I've been wanting to boil some eggs, but I'm ashamed to say I haven't done it in probably 20 years. All I knew is that I didn't want that ucky green ring around the yolk.

    Properly boiled eggs, here we come!
