How to Hard Boil Eggs

Some of the simplest things in life are also the hardest. Like waking up or choosing a movie on Netflix. Oh, and of course making hard-boiled eggs.

I’ve been boiling eggs like this for a long time and have never had a bad one or a difficult one to peel.

Watch this step-by-step video below to cook them perfectly every time.

Additional Tips:

1. Wait to hard boil eggs until about a week after you buy them. They are very easy to peel and fresh eggs don’t go bad in the fridge for at least two weeks.

2. Only boil for 8-10 minutes to avoid the dark ring around the yolk. Eight minutes for a softer yolk and ten minutes for a firm yolk. Twelve minutes for well cooked eggs.
