Our family loves hard boiled eggs! We love them deviled, in egg salad and just plain with salt and pepper. Any way you peel it, eggs are so yummy! (I couldn't resist the pun!)
One too many times in the past 22 years of marriage I have either under cooked or burned eggs I have been trying to hard boil. The smell of a burned 'boiled' egg is nasty and takes forever to get out of your house!
Fortunatly for me I found a really easy way to make the eggs so I don't have to babysit them while they are cooking.
  • Fill the bottom of your pot with eggs, only put one layer otherwise they will crack.
  • Cover with cold water.
  • Put on high heat and bring to a rapid boil. Some recipes call for salt in the water, I have done it both ways and it doesn't seem to matter.
  • Once water boils cover pot and remove from heat.
  • In ten to twelve minutes you will have the perfect hard boiled eggs and they will not have that greenish gray ring around the yolk!


  1. Sweet! Thanks for the tip. My fav way to eat them is pickled!!! I am salivating just thinking about it.

    Our first easter involved me forgetting the eggs boiling on the stove and waking up in th emiddle of the night to the sound of the eggs exploading!!! Trust me: it sounds like gun shots and smells horrible!! You are so right about it not being easy to get out!! yikes!!!

  2. YUMMY!!! I need to make some now. Love ya

  3. Thanks for the tip-I love them too, but am not really good at hard boiling them.
