Hard Boiled Eggs


  • Place eggs in a saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch.

  • Bring saucepan to a boil over high heat.

  • As soon as the saucepan reaches a boil, remove from burner, and cover with a lid.

  • Let eggs stand in hot water for about 12 minutes. NOTE: If extra-large eggs are used, let stand for about 18 minutes.

  • Drain immediately and place in a bowl of ice water until cool enough to handle. Then remove the shell from the egg.

  • Serve warm, or cool completely under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water. Refrigerate.
