How To Cook Hard Boiled Eggs

   

 

Items Needed

 

Eggs, Pan, Plate

 

Directions

  1. Remove raw eggs from the refridgerator and let them warm up to room temperature.  Failing to do so before boiling may result in the egg cracking due to a sudden change in temperature.
  2. Fill up a pan with water and place it on the stove burner.
  3. Gently put the eggs into the water making sure that they are fully covered and cover the pan.
  4. Turn the stove to medium heat so the water boils.
  5. After the water has boiled remove the pan from the heat source.
  6. Let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Rinse the eggs with cold water until they are no longer hot.
  8. Peel the eggs and enjoy.

 

Tips

 

Try using eggs that are about a week old.  They are easier to peel than fresh eggs.

 

Add a pinch of salt to the water before you boil it.  This should help prevent the eggs from cracking.
