What is the correct time to boil an egg?

2 Answers

Any time of the day is the correct time to boil an egg, the harder question is how long to boil it for which is 6 to 7 minutes in boiling water, not as some do 6 to 7 minutes with a pan of cold water with the heat on high. You need to boil your water first then add the egg

The boiling time for hard-boiled eggs is at least 5 minutes, on medium heat, with most people boiling a bit longer, for about 6 to 7 minutes. Once boiled, cool the eggs in cold water and peel immediately to avoid shells sticking. Serve or use the egg in the cooking recipe without any further delays.
