Knowing how to make hard boiled eggs is essential.
They make the perfect snack, breakfast or a great addition to a salad!
Making eggs isn’t always as easy as people make it seem. I love eggs, sunny-side up, over medium, or hard boiled. When I make hard boiled eggs it’s kind of like blind cooking, you can’t see if the whites are set or if the yolk is still runny.
So here is my fool-proof, easy to peel, how-to hard boiled eggs.
Here are some recipes that use hard or soft boiled eggs:
Get a medium sized pot with a lid
Get a pot with water and bring it up to a boil. While the water comes up to a boil, remove your eggs from the refrigerator so they adjust to room temperature.
Once the water is at a rolling boil, carefully add in the eggs to the water one at a time using a slotted spoon and allow it to boil (uncovered) for about 30 seconds.
Next, lower the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 7-11 minutes.
Depending on how well you want the yolk to be cooked. The temperature of the water should be 180-200F.
Soft boiled eggs should be simmered for 6-7 minutes.
Medium boiled eggs should be simmered for 8-9 minutes (pictured).
Hard boiled eggs should be simmered for 10-11 minutes.
