My dad makes perfect hard boiled eggs, so I finally asked him how.


  1. Place eggs in a single layer in a large pot.
  2. Fill pot with cold water a few inches over eggs.
  3. Put on high until water boils, reduce to med-low and cover.
  4. When water boils, start timer for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Pour most of the water off and fill with cold. Let sit for ~10 minutes to allow to cool.
