Hard-Boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast, a healthy snack or as a garnish for salads and appetizers.

  • 4 eggs

Serves 4

  1. Carefully place the eggs in a saucepan and add enough cold water to cover the eggs by about 1 inch.  There should be enough room around the eggs for the water to move freely.
  2. Put the saucepan on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let the eggs sit undisturbed for 9 to 10 minutes. (The shorter the time the creamier the yolk will be.)
  3. Pour out the hot water and run the pan under cold water until the pan is cool. Fill the pan with enough cold water to cover the eggs and leave the eggs sitting in the cold water for 10 minutes. (This helps cool the eggs and helps to avoid having a green ring around the yolks.)
  4. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
