My friends and I love to tell the story of how we learned how to make perfectly boiled eggs. One of our professors had us do a 2 hour lab day making eggs different ways from scrambled to boiled to over-easy. Each station had to prepare boiled eggs different ways to see which one was the easiest to peel, the best looking, and easiest way to cook.

As it turned out, starting with cold water, simmering for 10 minutes, and then immediately cooling them down with really cold water was the best way to get perfectly boiled eggs.

PERFECTLY BOILED EGGS RECIPE:

  • Place eggs in a medium sized pot
  • Cover the eggs with water to just above the eggs
  • Place heat on high until the water starts to boil
  • Once the water starts to boil, lower to medium-high heat
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes
  • Once the 10 minutes is up, immediately pour the water out.
  • Run cold water over the boiled eggs for 2-3 minutes
  • Peel and enjoy!
