Perfect hard-boiled eggs.

Are hard-boiled eggs a guy thing? My husband, Alex, is the go-to person in our family for perfectly peal-able hard-boiled eggs. They’re a staple, but I’ve yet to learn how to make them myself. So when I came across these instructions on Picky Palate today and realized that they describe Alex’s technique, I thought I should save them…

How To Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 1 dozen eggs

Directions

  1. Set 12 eggs or as many as you desire (in a single layer) into a large saucepan. Fill pot with water to completely cover the eggs at least 1 inch above eggs and turn heat to high. Bring water to a boil, takes approximately 15 minutes. As soon as eggs start to boil, let boil for 10-12 minutes (I do 11 minutes). Set timer to help.
  2. Immediately remove from heat and set pot in a clean/cleared out sink. Fill with cold water and ice cubes to stop cooking. Turn water off and Let eggs sit in ice for 10 minutes. Eggs should feel cool to the touch.
  3. Carefully crack the egg shell all the way around the egg. Squeeze the shell until the shell has detached from the egg and peel. See photos for visuals.
  4. Keep hard boiled eggs in their shell in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
