Better Hard Boiled Eggs in 4 Easy Steps

Hard-boiled eggs are a great source of protein and can be used in many different recipes. Here are four easy steps to help you make better hard-boiled eggs:

  1. Start with room-temperature eggs: Let your eggs sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before boiling them. This will help prevent the shells from cracking during the boiling process.
  2. Boil the water: Fill a pot with enough water to cover the eggs. Bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat.
  3. Add the eggs: Once the water is boiling, gently add the eggs to the pot with a slotted spoon. Make sure the eggs are completely submerged in the water.
  4. Boil and cool the eggs: Let the eggs boil for 8-12 minutes, depending on how well done you like your yolks. Once they’re done, use the slotted spoon to transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool for at least 5 minutes. This will help the eggs to peel more easily.

Bonus Tip: If you want to avoid overcooked yolks, try steaming your eggs instead of boiling them. Place the eggs in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover the pot with a lid, and steam for 10-12 minutes for hard-boiled eggs.

By following these simple steps, you can make perfect hard boiled eggs every time. Use them in salads, or sandwiches, or eat them as a snack for a healthy and filling meal option. And you can also use them to color eggs for Easter.
