I can't believe I haven't rated this recipe yet! I don't know where I got this note, but it makes this recipe a winner:<br/><br/>"When the eggs are cold -- this will take just a couple of minutes -- tap them gently on the counter to crack their shell all around, and return to the bowl a few more minutes: the water will infiltrate the eggs beneath the shell and make them easier to peel. (Also, when peeling the eggs, notice that there is a thin skin between the white and the shell; once found and ruptured, that skin provides good leverage to peel off the shell.)."<br/><br/>Yum!

Great and easy way to prepare hard boiled eggs. The worst part for me was having to wait for the water to boil. Thanks Cap' N Ron.

What a great way to do eggs, we did 2 dozen eggs for Easter with this method. Then split them between deviled eggs and dyed and they turned out perfect with no green and nicely centered yolks. What an awesome way to boil eggs. Thanks for posting.

This is terrific! I just had to make these today after I saw barefootmomma's picture in the PAC event thread. I've tried various methods but this one works the best and is so simple to time too. Beautiful eggs without the green edges around the yolks! Thanks for posting a keeper of a method for hard boiled eggs!

This really works. I have an awful habbit of letting them sit to long. I kept myself busy in the kitchen while making them and used my timer and it came out perfect. Thanks for such pretty eggs. Made for PAC Spring 2009
