Basic Hard-Boiled Eggs

Total Time: About 15 mins

Makes: 6 eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are so simple to make. Our method brings the eggs and water to a boil, then immediately stops the boiling and lets the eggs cook, covered, in the saucepan. Eight minutes does the trick, with no green ring around the yolks.

Instructions

  1. 1Place eggs in a medium saucepan with a tightfitting lid (the eggs should sit in a single layer). Add enough cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, then remove the pan from heat, cover, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 8 minutes.
  2. 2Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to a medium bowl of cold water. Gently crack the shells against the side of the bowl. Let the eggs sit in the water until cool. Drain and peel.
