How long should i boil a dozen eggs?
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.
Once the water is at a rolling boil, turn off the heat and cover the pot with the lid. Allow the eggs to sit in the hot water for: 3 minutes for SOFT boiled eggs: 6 minutes for MEDIUM boiled eggs: 12 minutes for HARD boiled eggs.
Once the eggs have reached a rolling boil, place a lid on the pot and remove it from the heat. Wait ten to twelve minutes for hard-boiled eggs to finish, then run them under cold water before peeling.
Hard boil eggs need to be placed at least 7 minutes in boiling water to reach its point
