How to Hard Boil an Egg

Simple Kitchen Tips for Hard Boiling and Peeling Eggs

I’ve tried many versions of How tos and this is the way I prefer to hard boil my eggs. Design

Place eggs into sauce pan and cover with water, bring to a rolling boil.  Set your timer for FOUR minutes.  The eggs will cook at the rolling boil stage for the four minutes then remove your pan from the hot stove eye and cover the pan with a lid for 12 minutes.  Drain the hot water from your eggs and replace with cool water and several ice cubes.  Allow eggs to cool for a few minutes and drain  Now you’re ready to peel your hard boiled eggs.

Removing  the shell:  Take the bottom of the egg (the widest part), and gently tap it against your counter til the shell cracks, then peel away a little of the shell making sure to remove the membrane also.  Next gently slide a spoon up int ot he shell and with a little pressure of the spoon pressed against the shell you will notice the shell pulls away form the egg, continue this motion around the egg until you’ve removed all the shell.
