HardBoiledEgg

8 May Egg

I have found the perfect way to cook a hard boiled egg. After countless hours on pintrest (okay maybe I am exaggerating), I got the best recipe for cooking a hard boiled egg from a woman at work- and it is flawless. I am in Colorado, so someone who is reading this at sea level may not get the same results, but here is what I need and do:

Need:

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • salt

Directions:

  1. Place the eggs in a large pot, and cover with cold tap water
  2. Put the pot with the eggs on the stove top, add a dash of salt to the water and turn the burner up
  3. Cover the pot
  4. Get the water to boil
  5. Once the water is boiling, turn down the burner to medium, allowing it to “barely boil”
  6. Set a timer for 20 minutes
  7. When the timer goes off, take the lid off, turn the burner off and let the eggs sit there for another 20 minutes
  8. Rinse eggs with cold water, and place in the fridge.

Now- here is the trick to the perfect way to PEEL the hard boiled egg:

  • Hit the bottom of the egg pretty hard against the counter top (or any flat surface) so that it creates a bubble affect and pushes air through the entire egg.
  • Peel away
  • Enjoy
