How long should i hard boil an egg?
Place the pot over high heat until it reaches a roaring boil. Turn off the heat, cover and let it sit for 13 minutes. After exactly 13 minutes, remove the eggs from the pot and place them in an ice-water bath and let them cool for five minutes.
8 to 10 minutes
To hard boil an egg put it 10 minutes in boiling water.
Put the uncooked eggs in cool tap water. Increase heat and cook until you achieve a rolling boil. Immediately remove from heat and cover for 10 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water and allow to cool in ice water. Peel and enjoy!
Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Cover the pan with a lid and bring water to a rolling boil over high heat; when the water has reached a boil, set the timer for the desired time: Boil for 6-7 minutes over medium-high heat for perfect hard boiled eggs.
I just found a really good method if you want them to peel super easy. Grab a steamer fill the bottom with water not to touch the eggs, put eggs in basket and steam 20 minutes. Cool and peel. The peels should just slide off.
Place one tablespoon of baking soda and eggs in cold water. Bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Remove, cover with cold water. Peel eggs, shell comes right off.
