How to Make How to Boil Eggs Perfectly

To boil eggs hard-boiled, you will need fresh eggs and water. Follow these steps:

  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan and add enough water to fully cover them.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the water to a boil.
  3. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, reduce the heat to low and start the timer.
  4. Boil the eggs in the simmering water for approximately 9-12 minutes, depending on the desired level of yolk doneness. Here are some recommendations:
    1. 9 minutes: Soft yolk, semi-liquid center. 
    2. 10-11 minutes: Medium-firm yolk, slightly creamy center. 
    3. 12 minutes: Hard yolk, fully cooked center.
    Feel free to experiment with the boiling time to achieve your preferred level of doneness.
  5. When the boiling time is up, carefully transfer the eggs to a saucepan with cold water or run them under cold tap water to stop the cooking process and cool the eggs.
  6. Gently tap and peel the eggs, starting from the wider end, to make it easier to remove the shells.

Now you have hard-boiled eggs! You can serve them as a snack, add them to salads, or use them in various recipes.
