Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs
Servings: 6

INGREDIENTS
6 eggs
Water, to cover
Ice, for ice bath

PREPARATION
Place eggs in a pot. Cover with cold water until the eggs are covered by about 1 inch of water.
Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once boiling, take off the heat.
Cover and cook for 4-16 minutes, depending on preference (4-6 minutes for soft-boiled, 8-10 minutes for medium-boiled, 12-16 minutes for hard-boiled). In the meantime, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water, creating an ice bath.
Once eggs reach desired cook-time, immediately remove the eggs from pot and place in the ice bath. Allow eggs to cool for 10-15 minutes.
To peel, lightly tap the eggs on a flat surface, then gently roll back and forth (taking extra care with soft-boiled eggs).
Pull away the loosened shell and peel any remaining pieces.
Serve as is or incorporate into your favorite recipe that requires hard-boiled eggs.
Enjoy!

  1. My mom taught me to put them into cold water and place the burner on medium/high. Once the water starts to boil let them cook for 5 minutes (no lid) . After 5 minutes turn stove off and place lid on saucepan for another 5 or so minutes. After that transfer to a iced water bath for 10 minutes.
    They always turn out perfect!

  2. Wanna know how to boil a perfect eg get your pan of water get it to the boiling point get a pinch of salt in there then dip the Egs into the boiling water 3 times then let ehm sit soft boill is 7 min medium 8-9 hard boiled 11-12 min easy

  3. Boil water. Drop eggs carefully. Remove eggs after 7 minutes. Peel, cut, add pink Himalayan salt and eat. Try it. .

  4. Im back, and Im not happy. I cooked 7 brown eggs from Costco.
    I followed the plan and did 15 minutes in the hot followed by 15 in the ice bath.
    The peeling went about as badly as any boiled eggs ive ever made.
    I won't be using this method again

  5. This is wrong, you’re supposed to put the eggs in when the water has reached a boil, you save so much more time that way

  6. My first time making hard boiled eggs, followed the instructions in this video and came out perfect. Thanks for making this video.

  7. Many you should make it clear that you have to peel he eggs as soon as you remove them from the water or else the shells will not come off.

  8. Develed eggs and hard boiled eggs are soooooooooo fuckin goood i can eat a whole bowl of develed eggs

  9. NO NEED FOR ICEWATER-TAKE ONE DOZEN CARTON & PLACE IN MEDIUM SIZE POT & ADD WATER JUST TIL ALL ARE SUBMERGED IN WATER THEN COVER POT TIGHTLY WITH LID ON LOW HEAT FOR HOUR THEN SHUT OFF HEAT & LET SIT IN WATER TIL THEY COOL OFF-THE SHELL WITH THE INNER PEEL WILL EASILY CRACK OFF.

  10. Im 11 and i need to make breakfast myself cause my parents are at work does anyone know if i should boil them at low medium or high heat?
