How to Make Tip: Perfect Hard-boiled Eggs


  1. 1. Place the eggs (as many as you want) in a single layer in the bottom of a lidded sauce pan.
  2. 2. Fill with water to a point 1 inch above the eggs
  3. 3. Place over high heat and bring just to a good boil.
  4. 4. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and allow to sit for precisely 16 minutes.
  5. 5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to an ice water bath to stop the cooking.
  6. 6. Peel and use.
  7. Note: Eggs that are a week or more old are easier to peel than fresh eggs and eggs that have spent the night in the refrigerator are easier to peel. You can also add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water to make them easier to peel.
