Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Many people think perfect hard boiled eggs are difficult to make, but they are actually quite simple.

  1. Take up to twelve eggs directly from the refrigerator and set them gently into a medium sauce pan.
  2. Cover with cold water.
  3. Place on burner and set to medium-high heat. (On a scale from 1-10 I set my burner to 8.)
  4. Bring water to a boil.
  5. When the water is boiling, remove from heat and let sit for 22.5 minutes. (The exact time may vary up to a minute depending on the exact temperature of your tap water. I live in the south and my water is never quite cold. Once you determine the exact time, it should remain constant.)
  6. Place eggs under cold running water until mildly warm.
  7. Refrigerate.
