Discover the best methods for consistently producing hard-boiled eggs!

Hard-boiled eggs will be simple to peel and have bright yellow yolks when prepared using this simple approach.

The good news is that making flawless hard-boiled eggs is simple. The unfortunate news is that imperfect ones are also. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve cooked a good deal of the latter.

Half of the whites are lost when you try to remove the shell, and the yolk is slightly green rather than a dazzling yellow when you cut it open. Underwhelming, in my opinion.

You see, making great hard-boiled eggs is simple, but that doesn’t imply the method you employ is unimportant. I’m delighted to report that this method for making hard-boiled eggs always works after years of trial and error!

The shells easily peel off, and the yolks are always a bright yellow. This simple hard-boiled egg dish is sure to please, whether you’re preparing for Easter, Passover, or just looking for a protein-packed snack.

To consistently produce flawless hard-boiled eggs, follow these easy steps:

  • Boil the eggs first. Put them in a pot and add 1 inch of cold water on top of them. Over high heat, bring the water to a rolling boil.
  • After that, allow them to soak in the hot water. Turn off the heat and cover the saucepan as soon as the water starts to boil. Depending on how you like your eggs, let the eggs in the boiling water for 10 to 12 minutes. The yolks of the eggs prepared in 10 minutes will be bright and creamy, whereas those prepared in 12 minutes will be whiter, opaque, and have a chalkier texture.
  • Then transfer them to an ice bath. After the allotted time has passed, drain the eggs and place them in a sizable bowl of ice water to halt the cooking. Before peeling the eggs, give them at least 14 minutes in the ice bath.

You are welcome to keep the eggs in their shells and keep them in the refrigerator if you won’t be eating them right away.

Don’t end the ice bath early, even if this is the case. It’s important to do so to stop the frying process and facilitate the later peeling of the eggs.

  • Purchase the eggs ahead of time. When I make sunny-side-up eggs, fresh eggs always produce the best results. The converse is true, though, if I’m hard-boiling them! Farm-fresh eggs that have been boiled take longer to peel than older eggs. It pays to purchase the eggs in advance and cook them after a few days in the refrigerator if you want to make ideal hard-boiled eggs.
  • Eggs should be kept upside down. This advice was given by Jack’s mother, who always makes the BEST deviled eggs for parties. She advises storing the raw eggs upside down before cooking so the yolks would sit perfectly in the center of the hard-boiled eggs.
  • Avoid avoiding the icy bath! Hard-boiled eggs that are overcooked have an unattractive green ring around the yolk. As soon as the eggs are removed from the saucepan, place them in an ice bath to stop the cooking process so that the yolks will come out a sunny yellow color. Additionally essential for producing easily peeled hard-boiled eggs is this step. You’ll be able to peel off the shell without ripping off portions of egg white thanks to the ice bath’s assistance in separating the egg membrane from the shell.
  • Peel them with caution. You should be successful in this situation thanks to the ice bath, but it doesn’t guarantee that the shell will come off completely. To shatter the entire shell into tiny pieces, gently tap the egg on the counter. Peel it away slowly, taking care to preserve as much of the egg whites’ integrity as you can.


Hard-boiled eggs can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, whether they are peeled or not. As a protein-rich snack, eat them with salt and pepper or anything.

Add them to grain bowls, salads, or toast with seasoning or avocado toast. I also enjoy cooking hard-boiled eggs to use in nutritious egg salads or deviled eggs.


Every time you use this simple way too hard-boil eggs, it works! They have lovely yellow yolks and are simple to peel. Snack on them, include them in salads, and more!

  1. In a medium pot, add the eggs and 1 inch of cold water. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and cover the saucepan. Depending on the level of doneness you desire, let the eggs cook covered for 9 to 12 minutes.
  2. Place the eggs in an ice-filled basin and chill for 14 minutes. Eggs are now simpler to peel as a result. Peel, then savor!


*The size, kind, and freshness of the eggs may vary. Fresh eggs from the farm are more challenging to peel than older eggs.
