Hard-Boiled Eggs

Hard-Boiled Eggs


  • 12 large eggs


  • Large pot with lid
  • Bowl filled with ice water


  1. Place eggs in a single layer in pot.  Add enough water to cover above eggs at least an inch.  Bring to a boil quickly over high heat.
  2. Turn heat off, remove pan from burner, and cover for 15 minutes.
  3. Immediately transfer eggs to ice water bath and let stand for 15 minutes.


– Eggs that are a week old are easier to peel than fresh eggs.
– A cold water bath prevents the green ring from forming between the yolk and white.
