Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
I’ve been on a quest over the past few days to find out how to make the “Perfect Hard Boiled Egg” since Easter is coming up on Sunday. At my house, dyeing eggs on the Saturday before Easter is a tradition. We’re not talking a couple eggs here…we’re talking 5 (yep, that’s FIVE) dozen eggs. I know that sounds ridiculous, but that’s only 8 eggs per kid, with a few extra to account for the eggs that inevitably crack while boiling.
With this easy and fail-proof method for hard boiled eggs, the whites will be firm, but not rubbery, and the yolk will be yellow (not grayish – a sign of over cooking) with just the slightest hint of a shiny center.
- Put eggs in pan of water so that water covers eggs by at least an inch, and bring to a boil.
- After the eggs have boiled for 3 minutes, remove from heat and cover. Let sit for 15 minutes.
- Drain hot water and add cold water with ice, to stop the eggs from further cooking.
