Foolproof Hard-Boiled Eggs

Posted by & filed under Eggs and Breakfast.

Makes 6

You can double or triple this recipe as long as you use a pot large enough to hold the eggs in a single layer, covered by 1 inch of water.


6 large eggs


Place the eggs in a medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to a boil over high heat.  Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, fill a medium bowl with 1 quart water and 1 tray ice cubes (or the equivalent).

Transfer the eggs to the ice-water bath with a slotted spoon and let sit 5 minutes.  Tap each egg all over against the counter surface to crack the shell, then roll it gently back and forth a few times.  Begin peeling from the air-pocket (wider) end.  The shell should come off in spiral strips attached to the thin membrane.
