Hard boiled eggs

I’m sure that most of you are accomplished cooks but if there’s one thing that I’ve learned it’s that many people need the really basic info when it comes to cooking. Hence, today I’m going to tell you how to hard boil an egg.

Place your egg (or eggs – you might want to keep a stash of preboiled eggs in the fridge for snacks or protein additions to meals like salads) in a saucepan and fill with enough water to just cover the egg. Cover, and put the pan on the burner. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, turn the heat off and leave the egg in the covered pan for 10 minutes. Tap the egg to break the shell and membrane to ease peeling. Place the egg in cold water (or run cold tap water over the egg) until the egg is cool enough to peel. If you have difficulty peeling your eggs you might want to add a teaspoon of bakingΒ soda to your water before boiling your eggs.
