Perfect Boiled Eggs

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 8 mins

This may seem simple to most, but as an amateur chef I know I sometimes need help with basic cooking techniques! So here's a simple way to hard boil your eggs!


  1. Place eggs in stainless steel pot, do not stack.
  2. Cover with cold water to where eggs are just immersed.
  3. Cook to boiling, immediately remove and cover with lid; let stand 20 minutes.
  4. Voila, the perfect boiled egg.
  5. Note: You can do this with however many eggs you need; I only chose 4 because they required me to give a serving size!

PERFECT eggs every time! I only stand for 16 minutes though & will never make them another way again :-)

Absolutely perfect! I could never remember how long to cook and inevitably overcooked my eggs. This has worked every time. Thanks!

These turned out very well. I cooked 8 eggs, following you'r recipe exactly, and they were all easy to peel and cooked perfectly. Thanks Kree for posting
