You might lose your appetite. That’s why I’m sharing my tips on how to make the perfect hard-boiled eggs.

How to make perfect hard-boiled eggs

Lots of people share different ways of cooking hard-boiled eggs. Some of them suggest removing the eggs from the heat once the water is boiling, then let them sit for a couple of minutes. Some people, on the other hand, recommend baking eggs in the oven for 15 to 30 minutes. That’s a lot of time, especially for those who need to prepare their things fast in the morning.

Hard-boiled eggs must be quick and easy to cook. Yes, you only need a few minutes to cook a perfect egg, so why spend half an hour? Eggs are an affordable source of protein. They can be served as a satisfying breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, or appetizer. So, let’s start cooking.

Here are the steps in making perfect hard-boiled eggs:

  1. Pour cool water in a large saucepan. Then, place the eggs. Make sure that the water covers the eggs by 1 inch.
  2. Cover the saucepan and let the water boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high when it comes to a boil.
  3. Set a timer. Then, cook the eggs for 7 minutes
  4. Transfer the eggs to a large bowl of ice water using a slotted spoon. Let them cool down. You can also place the eggs under cool running water for a few minutes. 
  5. Peel immediately once removed from the cold water. Crack the shell and roll them on the kitchen counter.
  6. If some of the eggs are hard to peel, crack the shells and soak in a bowl of water. This will help make the peeling easier.
