Would you admit that your hard boiled eggs ain’t all that and actually resemble rubber sometimes? For YEARS I had no idea that I was over cooking my hard boiled eggs. I thought a boiled egg was a boiled egg….WRONG. Seriously, how can you over cook a hard boiled egg, right? Well surprise to me. I didn’t know when I boiled my eggs and they come out with a dark greenish ring around the yellow, they were waaaay over cooked. But I don’t do that anymore!
Here is a foolproof way to get them to come out perfect every time. And it’s so easy peasy!
Here’s all you need:
Cool water enough to cover the eggs
Put the eggs in the pot and cover them with cool water. Put the pot on med-high and allow the water to come to a boil. Once the water starts to boil, immediately remove from the eye and put a lid on the pot. Set a timer for 10 minutes. When timer goes off put eggs in a colander and rinse with cold water. Take the pot and cool it off with cold water then put eggs back into the pot and cover them with cold water. Let the eggs sit in the cold water for a few minutes so that they stop cooking. Voila!! Peel and enjoy!
