The Real Way To Make Hard Boiled Eggs


What you’;ll need is a saucepan, your eggs, water and salt.

Getting Those Eggs Ready

I have googled how to make hard boiled eggs several times, each site had something different to say, but I found my eggs were always coming out undercooked (gross) and frankly, me being disappointed.

To start off line the bottom of the pan with eggs, it’;s important not to stack them as they won’;t all cook thoroughly. Next add cold water to your eggs so that there’;s an inch or two of water above them. Cold water is important, this lowers the “shock” and tends to lead to less cracking during full boil.

Boiling The Goods

Add a pinch of salt, just a pinch. Adding to much salt will make the water harder to reach to a boiling point. Put your pot on eggs on full heat (high) immediately until you see the water start to boil, I mean those eggs are really bubbling in there. Once they are at a full boil lower to heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes. (This may vary depending on how many eggs you have, or how much water you put in, I usually cook with 5 eggs at a time and 15 minutes is perfect) After 15 minutes turn off the heat and let the eggs simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes. Once you’;ve done this drain the excess water and rinse your eggs in cold water until they can be handled.

And We Wait

Although it’;s perfectly fine to eat your eggs right after making them, I always found they taste a little better after cooling in the fridge for a few hours or even overnight to enjoy for breakfast the next morning!

Just remember those eggs won’;t be good for long, and enjoy!
