Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan (do not stack eggs). Add enough cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a rapid boil over high heat (water will have large rapidly breaking bubbles). Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes; drain.

  • Run cold water over the eggs or place them in ice water until cool enough to handle; drain.

  • To peel eggs, gently tap each egg on the countertop. Roll the egg between the palms of your hands. Peel off eggshell, starting at the large end.

  • Makes 6 hard-cooked eggs


*If you have extra-large eggs, let eggs stand in the boiled water for 18 minutes.
