The Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg

Whether you are boiling your eggs for Easter decorations or Easter brunch, it can often be a battle between not cooked enough and cooked too much!  Here are Kim's quick tips on how to cook the perfect hard-boiled egg.

Making the Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg
  1. Make sure that the eggs are room temperature.  Speed this process up by placing the eggs in hot tap water.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan that can hold them in a single layer.  Add enough water to cover by 1-inch.
  3. Bring water to a boil, remove pan from heat and cover.  Let sit 10 minutes.  Drain.
  4. Place eggs in a bowl of ice water and cool completely.
  5. Crack the shells by rolling the egg on the counter and peel under cold water.
There you have it!  An egg that has a yolk that is set, but not tinged with green (indicating your eggs are over cooked).  These will make the perfect deviled eggs, egg salad or eggs for decorating!
