Makes: 6-12 hard-boiled eggs

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

The Ingredients

6-12 large eggs

*TIP: eggs that are closer to their expiration date will be easier to peel!

The Steps

In a large pot, bring water to a steady boil.

Using a slotted spoon, gently lower eggs, one or two at a time, into the water, releasing them into the water once your spoon hits the bottom of the pot. Once all eggs are in the water, immediately set the timer for 12 minutes for hard boiled eggs OR 10 minutes for soft-boiled eggs. Periodically check the water to make sure the water stays at a gentle boil. If the water boils too hard, the eggs will break, and if the water is too low, the eggs won’t cook by the set time!

Make a bath of ice water in a bowl.

When your timer goes off, immediately transfer eggs into the ice water bath using a slotted spoon. Let the eggs rest in the ice water bath for about 10-15 minutes, until cooled.

To peel eggs: gently tap the top of each egg on kitchen counter, and peel back the shell. Peeled eggs will save in fridge for 3 days.

To save eggs for up to 5 days: keep eggs in shell, and place in a zip-lock bag in the fridge. Peel eggs right before you want to eat them for optimal freshness!
