I've been cooking hard boiled eggs like this for years. It really works. A TV chef recently suggested draining the water and shaking the boiled eggs in the pot in order to crack the shells, then submerge them in cold water to cool........makes for easier peeling.
- Place eggs in pot and cover with water.
- Turn off heat and allow to sit for 16 minutes.
- Drain and fill pot with ice water to stop cooking.
