Recipe: Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

With Easter this weekend, it's time to share my handy dandy instructions for perfectly done hard boiled eggs.

1. Carefully place eggs in bottom of a large pan.
2. Cover with cold water
3. Heat over medium high heat until water comes to a boil.
4. Remove from heat; cover with lid.
5. Wait at least 20 minutes or until you get around to them.

The eggs will be cooked through and not rubbery!

If you live at very high elevations, this might not work for you, but otherwise, I've never had them fail! In general, the shells won't stick as badly to eggs that are a bit on the old side. The closer they are to their use by date, the less they stick.

  1. I've tried this before with good results--first heard about it from Martha Stewart! Usually I just boil the eggs for 10 minutes to save time though.
