The Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Sometimes taking a step back and perfecting the basics makes all the difference. This recipe will help you achieve the perfect yellow yoke for a hard boiled egg. It will help you avoid that grey/greenish ring that can appear around the outside.

Hard boiled eggs are yummy to eat on their own, perfect on a salad, or can be used for egg salad or deviled eggs!

I like to sprinkle some paprika on hard boiled eggs for some color.
  • Place eggs in a sauce pan in a single layer.
  • Add cold water to cover eggs by about an inch.
  • Heat on high heat to boil.
  • Remove from burner
  • Cover pan.
  • Let eggs sit in water for 12 minutes (for large eggs)
  • Drain, and serve warm, or place in iced water (or in the fridge) to cool.
