How to

  • Gather Tools and Ingredients.

  • Place Eggs in a Pot so that they are in a single layer, then add cold Water.

  • Place Pot on Stove set to high heat and bring to a boil. As soon as Water boils place a Lid on the Pot and turn off the heat.

  • At this moment set a timer for exactly 8 minutes.

  • While the Eggs are cooking, prepare a Bowl with Ice and fill with Water to create an ice bath. When timer finishes, remove Eggs from Pot and place in ice bath.

  • Once the Eggs have cooled completely, under a running faucet of cold water, gently crack and remove the shells.

Bonus!

  • Once Eggs are peeled, try storing them submerged in vinegar to make Pickled Eggs.

  • Add Eggs to Breakfast Recipes like Easy Bake Bacon or Chard and Potato Saute!

  • When peeling, try to keep the membrane attached to the shell.

  • For Soft Boiled Eggs, follow recipe but boil for 6 minutes
