Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

As I am boiling eggs for my daughter to color today, it comes to mind that everyone seems to have a different sure fire way to get the perfect hard boiled egg.

CarriesCooking Hard Boiled Egg

  1. Place eggs in pan.
  2. Cover eggs with water.
  3. Heat eggs over high heat until water comes to a rapid boil.
  4. Turn off heat on stove, leaving pan on hot burner. (I use electric stoves. I am not sure if this would work on a gas stove.)
  5. Set timer for 10 minutes.
  6. Pull eggs from water and put into cool bath.

What is your never fail way of making the perfect hard boiled egg?

Boil water w/ salt. Add eggs, set timer for 15 minutes. Pour off hot water, run cold water over eggs until cool.

HARD COOKED EGGS: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan then add enough water to come at least 1" above the eggs. Cover and bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat leaving them covered for approximately 15 minutes for large eggs. Adjust timer by about 3 minutes up or down for larger or smaller eggs. After the timer goes off place eggs in a bowl of ice water until completely cooled. I find 17 minutes for extra large eggs is just right.
