My Foolproof (almost) Method for Boiling Eggs

( Nothing is Foolproof for a talented Fool)




I’ve tried other methods as well but this one keeps being the one.  I’ve been boiling eggs like this for many years and seldom have a mishap.


What You Need:

Large pot of boiling water



What you do:

1.  Take eggs out of fridge for at least 30 min.

2.  Boil 2-3 quarts of water

3.  WHEN THE WATER IS BOILING,  gently place the eggs in the

            water with a slotted spoon.

4.  Set your timer for 12 minutes after you’ve put them in.

5.  When timer goes off run them under cold water for 5-10 min.


You now have perfectly cooked eggs but more importantly, you have perfectly peelable eggs.
