Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

You know how some people admit that they can't cook, not even boil a pot of water. Well, if they can boil water, do you think they would know how to cook boiled eggs? It seems pretty simple. And it is.

For breakfast, my husband eats boiled eggs every day. He would let the eggs cooked in the boiling water forever... well, ten minutes top. Then he just let the eggs sit in the boiling water after he turned off the heat. He still does it this way.

So the white eggs tasted weird, rubbery. The yolks have that gray coloring around the edge. Not only they looked odd but they tasted like paste. It was no wonder my kids and I didn't like boiled eggs.

I've been reading and watching videos on the internet about tips and tricks on cooking just about anything. Several websites suggested different method of cooking the perfectly boiled eggs. One suggested putting the eggs in a muffin pan and bake for 30 minutes in 350F degree oven. Really... no kidding. I never tried this method just because it isn't cost effective to me.

So I tested out different method and fell in luv with this one. Let the water comes to a full boil, turn off the heat, then let the eggs sit in the boiling water for awhile until they are cooked. Fool-proof every time. Now the question is... what are you going to do with the perfect hard-boiled eggs?

Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs
makes as many as you like
  1. Place the eggs inside the pot.
  2. Fill the pot with room temperature water until the eggs submerge in the water.
  3. Cover the pot and bring the water to a full boil. NOTE: Full boil means to the water is bubbling and rolling for 60 seconds.
  4. Once the water boil, turn off the heat. NOTE: For gas stove, just leave the pot on the burner. For electric stove, place the pot on a cool burner, away from heat.
  5. With the cover on, let the eggs sit in the boiling water. For extra large eggs, it will take 10 minutes to cook the eggs. For large eggs, it will take 7-8 minutes to cook the eggs.
  6. Once the timing goes off, replace the hot water with cold water.
  7. Take the eggs and place them on a towel to air dry.
  8. Now cut the eggs and see how perfectly boiled eggs you just cooked. Enjoy!!!
STORING: These boiled eggs can be kept in a fridge for up to 5 days.

Allergy Info: Well, it's obvious. Hard-boiled eggs are just that, eggs.
