Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

Cook Time11 mins
Servings: 6 eggs


  • 6 eggs preferably older eggs for easier peeling
  • Water


  • Side Note: Older eggs are known to be easier to peel after boiling.
  • Place the eggs into a saucepan then cover completely with cold water.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat then boil for 1 minute. Turn the heat off and remove it from the burner. Cover with a lid and let the eggs sit for 10 minutes. Gently pour out most of the hot cooking water then fill the saucepan with ice-cold water until the eggs are cool to the touch--about 1-2 minutes.
  • Gently tap the bottom of the egg on the counter to crack then carefully roll the egg on the counter to crack the rest of the shell. Carefully, peel the shell from the egg. If the shells are stubborn, try peeling them under running water.
  • Slice and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, if desired, then eat. Enjoy.
