Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Big Boy loves Egg Salad sandwiches.  And I love how easy they are.  Especially know that I've learned how to make the perfect hard boiled eggs.  So simple.

Just put your eggs in a large pot of cool to lukewarm water.

Put your pot on the stove and bring to a boil.

Place lid on pot once you reach the boiling point and turn off the burner.

Allow to sit for 10 minutes.


You can let them sit longer but the shells will stick more and be harder to peel.    to help you peel the eggs, remove the shells while holding them under running water.  That easy!

That's what WORKS FOR ME!

I have resorted to buying my HB eggs from the grocery store already peeled. I'll try anything to get a decent HB egg.

Thanks so much!

Don't forget to get them out of the hot water at 10 minutes and put them in cold icy water. This will keep the yolks from turning green. And another tip - Use white eggs from the store instead of the nice brown eggs. The fresher the egg the harder it is to peel.

Cool. You know that no one wants to ask how to boil an egg. I mean, how dumb does that sound? So, that was nice of you sharing the info without us having to feel stupid and ask. Thank you!!!
