Hard Boiled Eggs the EASY Way! 

If there’s a basic life skill you should have, it’s knowing how-to hard boil an egg. Why? Because this simple cooking technique sets you up for creating nourishing meals that won’t break the bank! So what are you waiting for? It’s time you mastered the art of making hard boiled eggs!

First Things First

Before we teach you just how easy it is to hard boil eggs, there are a few things you should know. First, this recipe was created for large eggs, not medium or extra-large. If you’re using a size other than large, you’ll have to adjust your time up or down a bit. Second, don’t rush the process. It’s tempting to turn the heat up to get that water boiling more quickly, but that doesn’t equate to excellent eggs, so resist the urge. Finally, use our simple trick in Step 3 to assist with peeling eggs (because we know that step can be a bit daunting!):


Step 1

Place 6-8 large eggs in the bottom of a large 2-quart sauce pot. Cover the eggs with cold water, adding enough to cover them by 1-inch.


Step 2

Set the pot over medium-high heat and bring water to a boil. Once at a full, rolling boil, cover with a lid and set a timer for 12 minutes.

Step 3

Drain and place in ice bath or run under cold water. Roll gently to crack on the bottom of the bowl. Remove from the water, peel and enjoy.
