Funny thing is that I called them hard-boiled but I don't actually boil the eggs to cook them. If you want pretty little yellow yolks with no green edges on the yolks this is the way to do it.
Foolproof Hard-Boiled Eggs1 Dozen eggs (the fresher the eggs, the harder they are to peel)
Place eggs in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water by 1-1/2 inches.
Bring to a boil that is really bubbling. Shut off heat. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
Add ice and water to cool eggs.

This is exactly how my husband cooks our hard boiled eggs, works every time!ReplyDelete
It's a no brainer, mostly. I have walked off waiting for it to and it boils a little longer than I wanted it to before I shut it off. LOLDelete
I agree, this is the best way to do it! Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays! Happy Thanksgiving week! HUGS!ReplyDelete

That's pretty much how I cook my hard boiled eggs as well. I haven't tried the ice trick, but I'll remember it when I need the eggs in a hurry. Thanks for linking up to Tapas Tuesday Social Happy Hour. I'm sure this post will be useful to many people :)ReplyDelete
I always need mine in a hurry!Delete
That's how I do it, too! But I don't bother with ice water. I just fill the pan with cool water, drain and repeat a few times. My boys like the eggs a little warm still.ReplyDelete
Depends on what I am making. Egg salad or on salad needs chilled but if I put it in the egg gravy they can be warmer. So easy!ReplyDelete
