The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

How many times have you made these bad boys and they just aren't right! Either over cooked in the middle or the yolk is still funny! Oh and they just don't peel!

My husband and I LOVE hard boiled eggs! They are the perfect on the go breakfast and a great source of protein when you just need a quick snack! We usually keep some in the fridge at all times! 

Well here are some helpful tips to get these eggs to boil to perfection :) 

1/2 dozen eggs (or as many as you would like)

1. Take a sauce pan and fill 2/3 of the way full with water. Bring water to a boil first 
2. After the water is boiled, gently place each egg into the boiling water (make sure water is boiling first)
3. Set timer for 14 minutes and let the eggs cook! 
4. When the time goes off, take the pan off the burner and let eggs sit for 5 minutes in hot water
5. After 5 minutes place eggs in a bowl of ICE cold water! Or run them under cold water in the sink for several minutes! 
6. Peel, add a little salt and pepper, and enjoy :) 


  1. Yum! I'm going to have to try this. I always put them in first and then let them sit in the pot while the water comes to a boil, but I'm going to have to try this way!

  2. This is how I make mine as well! It really is the best way. :)

    1. Same here! That cold water afterwards is key!

  3. Ok I eat at least 1 hard boiled egg A DAY and I've never made them this way - I"m taking a pic with my phone (haha) and doing this tonight! Yum!

  4. I need to try this. I never did know the exact timing of it... & I've been REALLLLY lazy & buying boiled eggs already done in the store ;) haha #winneroflazy

  5. I can't make a good hard boiled ever for anything !!! I'm going to try your recipe !! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I'm trying to eat healthier, and one of the things I'm trying to do is get myself to enjoy hard boiled eggs. I'm slowly getting there, but maybe a little more salt and pepper than I'm using is the trick ;)

  7. Looks good! I haven't boiled eggs in while and I definitely need to try this method. =)
