How To Hard-Boil an Egg

How To Hard-Boil An Egg (courtesy of 5Min.com)

From Out and Bound to Martha Stewart to Jacques Pepin – everyone seems to have their own way of making the perfect boiled egg. I’m Katy, and, with my simple method, there’s no egg puncturing or pan shaking required!

First put the eggs in the saucepan, and fill with enough water to cover by 1 inch. You may want to consider using room temperature eggs, but, fresh from the fridge is fine, too.

Then, bring the eggs to a boil on high heat.

Next, cover the pan and immediately remove it from the heat.

While the eggs are sitting, fill a medium bowl with ice and water.

After 10 minutes, remove the eggs from the hot water, and transfer them to the ice water bath. Let them sit for another 5 minutes. Giving the eggs a cold water bath helps remove the shell, so if you’re looking at 2 eggs and can’t tell which one’s raw, spin them on the counter top. Hard-boiled eggs should spin quickly and easily, like a top!
