How to Boil Eggs

How To Boil Eggs Perfectly Every Time

Makes 6 eggs

6 large eggs
Cold water
Slotted spoon


  • Put eggs in the saucepan in cold water. 
  • Set the heat on high.

  • Bring water to a boil. It should be a full rolling boil.

  • Turn off heat completely and put a lid on the saucepan.If your stovetop is electric, remove the saucepan from the burner and then cover the pan

        • Set the time for the time desired. Leave the eggs in the covered pan for the amount of time that is right. And for how long you ask?
        • It also depends on whether you want soft-boiled or hard-boiled eggs. For softer eggs you just want a slower cook time of about 4 minutes, but with firmer soft-boiled eggs you want a total of 6 minutes. For firm yet creamy hard boiled eggs you want to cook it for 10 minutes.
        • After that you tap the eggs gently when the time you choose is up. You want to remove the eggs from the saucepan with the slotted spoon.
        • Then put the eggs in a bowl of ice water. You want to leave the eggs there for a minute. Peel and eat the egg and enjoy!

          Extra recipe notes:
          You can also do fewer eggs or more at one time. 
          To store the eggs, refrigerate any unused in their shells before two hours. They will last about a week in the fridge.
