For classic deviled eggs, you'll need:
1. Place eggs and water in a saucepan. Cover eggs with 1 inch of cold water, but do not stack the eggs.
2. Bring water to boiling. Heat saucepan over medium-high heat; remove once water is rapidly boiling.
3. Cover and let stand. After 15 minutes, drain the eggs and cool them with cold water.
4. Peel the eggs. Gently tap the egg on the counter to crack the shell, then use your fingers to peel it.
