How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs

Boiling eggs is really very easy. Hard-boiled eggs can be eaten as soon as you are done cooking them, or can be used for a variety of recipes, such as deviled eggs or egg salad for egg salad sandwiches.


There are two different methods of making hard-boiled eggs.

Method #1:

  • Place eggs in a sauce pan. Add water to pan until water is 1 inch above the eggs.
  • Cook eggs over medium heat until water begins to boil.
  • Reduce heat to low, and cook for no longer than 15 minutes.
  • Cool eggs by running cold water over them.

Method #2:

  • Place eggs in sauce pan. Add water to pan until water is 1 inch above the eggs.
  • Heat water until it begins to boil.
  • Remove pan from heat and cover with tightly fitting lid.
  • Let pan sit for 30 minutes.
  • Cool eggs by running cold water over them.

I have made hard-boiled eggs by using both of these methods and have had success with both. Just make sure you don't forget about the eggs and boil them for too long or they won't turn out as well.
