I love hard-boiled eggs. I love to eat them plain or on a salad or as egg salad or deviled eggs… there are so many uses for a good hard-boiled egg. But it can be hard to get your eggs cooked to perfection. They either aren’t cooked quite all the way, leaving different colors in the yolk, or they are over cooked and you get that strange green ring around the yolk. I have found the way to get your eggs perfectly hard-boiled every time!
- 1 tsp salt
Put your eggs in a large pot and completely cover with water making sure the water goes an inch or two over the eggs and add salt
Put the pot on the stove over high heat and bring to a full rolling boil
Remove from heat and immediately cover
Keep covered for 13 minutes
Meanwhile, fill a large bowl with ice and water
When eggs are finished, move immediately to the ice water
Leave in the water for at least 10 minutes before peeling
