Making the Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg
- Make sure that the eggs are room temperature. Speed this process up by placing the eggs in hot tap water.
- Place eggs in a saucepan that can hold them in a single layer. Add enough water to cover by 1-inch.
- Bring water to a boil, remove pan from heat and cover. Let sit 10 minutes. Drain.
- Place eggs in a bowl of ice water and cool completely.
- Crack the shells by rolling the egg on the counter and peel under cold water.
