Step One: Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water approximately 1 inch above eggs.
Step Two: Bring water to a boil. When the first bubble comes up from the bottom, turn the heat off.
Step Three: Immediately cover the eggs and leave on the burner. Set timer for 14 minutes.
Step 4: Run cold water over the eggs to stop the cooking process. Peel your eggs and enjoy!
This is the correct way to hard cook an egg. If you are making boiled eggs for salad, using them to garnish or making deviled eggs one of the key tips is to make sure they are not greenish/gray on the outside of the yolk. This is caused by over cooking. If you follow these simple steps you will have bright yellows and the whites will not be rubbery.
Another helpful tip is to use “older” eggs nearing expiration. By doing so they will be easier to peel.
After you have the perfect hard cooked egg you can make Linda’s Deviled Eggs!
