Ingredients

1 dozen eggs

Directions

  1. Place your eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover, remove from the heat and set aside 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, cool in ice water and peel.

For Soft Boiled Eggs

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, then add your eggs and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, cool in ice water and peel.

For Medium Boiled Eggs

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, then add your eggs and cook 7 to 8 minutes. Drain, cool in ice water and peel.

Cook’s Note

Let eggs stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking to eliminate the chill from the refrigerator. Cook 1 dozen eggs or less at one time for more even cooking.
