Perfect hard boiled eggs. Very creamy and rich yolks not overcooked at all.
I put my eggs right into a bath of ice water and they came out great. Only had a few that ended up not peeling well. I used fresh eggs. Next time I will use older eggs for perfection.
That you for ur help they are great much better than mine.
Just came back from a trip with friends where I made the boiled eggs. I got rave reviews. I have used this method for several years now with great results. I passed on the link to this site to all my friends and I think they will use it too. Thanks for the method and the great extra hints.
Awesome!! Works perfect every time. Thanks
The easiest and best way to hard boil eggs!!
Good recipe… my eggs turned out PERFECT!!!
The eggs came out perfect!
This technique really does make perfect eggs…every time! I’ve made hard boiled eggs many other ways and have never ended up with eggs this great. Not only are they perfectly done they also peel easy ( I do add a salt to the water).
Poke a hole through the shell on the fatter end of the egg BEFORE you cook it and the shell will come off super easily.
Karen, if using fresh eggs, I pour in a lot of salt. A lot of salt. I don’t measure I just pour it in. I have always had good luck with this. I can’t imagine 1/2 tsp of working at all.
I’ve used this technique 3x and ALL of my eggs are a disaster to peel. I used salt, I used vinegar, I used white shelled eggs and brown organic eggs. Yet? Most of the egg white comes off with the shell. I see there is a different technique for “easy-to-peel” eggs which begs the question: Who wants difficult-to-peel eggs?
Omg, this actually worked. My eggs came out perfect, not over cooked, not green, and they peeled easily. I’m actually stunned. I will never hard boil eggs any other way again. Thank you!!!!
Used the Boiling method for 12 eggs, salted the water. Let them sit for 16-18 minutes. Sacrificed one egg to be sure, peeled very easily and nice fluffy texture. No green ring! Perfect!
Worked perfectly! I tried the boiling method described above with just 4 eggs—let sit for 15 minutes and they turned out great.
So I should peel them right after cooking as opposed to when I am ready to eat them?
Hi Alexandra, I would recommend peeling them right after you’ve cooled them in cold water. They will be much easier to peel then rather than after they’ve been stored in the fridge.
Just bought an egg steamer. Can’t seem to dial it in. Tried this method and eggs are perfect. Easy to peel and no green yokes.
I used to use an old cookbook from the 50’s to hard boil my eggs but that method didn’t seem to work and I always thought it was my lack of cooking skills! BUT this method proved me wrong! Loved it, very easy and fool-proof! Eggs peeled effortlessly!
PERFECT! I use to make deviled eggs all the time and then I started having a horrible time peeling them nicely. I used organic brown eggs and followed this recipe and easy peasy Perfect! Thanks!
My go to way every time!
