Try these step-by-step tips for making perfect hard-boiled eggs:
Step 1: Place eggs and water in a saucepan
Arrange the eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan so they cook evenly. Do not stack them. Add enough cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch.
Step 2: Bring water to boiling
Heat saucepan over medium-high heat until the water comes to a rapid boil (water will have large, rapidly breaking bubbles). Immediately remove pan from heat.
Step 3: Cover and let stand
After removing from heat, cover the saucepan and allow it to stand for 15 minutes. Drain the eggs, then run cold water over them or place them in a large bowl filled with ice water until the eggs cool.
Step 4: Peel the eggs
To peel an egg, gently tap it on the counter to crack the shell. Use your fingers to peel off the shell. Rinse the peeled egg under cold water to remove any remaining bits of shell. If desired, use a thin-bladed sharp knife to chop the eggs.
