How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Hard boiling an egg seems to be an art that is often lost as soon as the burner turns on. There are a number of ways to boil an egg based on your preference of runniness. With each large egg packing 6g of protein and a source of vitamin D and B12, they make a nutritious and delicious healthy snack!

To get that perfectly “just cooked” yolk, try out this method!


Makes 4 hard boiled eggs:


1. Place the eggs in a medium pot and put enough luke warm/room temperature water in to JUST cover the tops of the eggs.

2. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil.

3. As soon as the water is boiling, turn off the heat but keep the pot on the burner with the lid on.

4. Set a timer for 10 minutes.

5. Once the 10 minutes is up, immediately transfer the eggs to an ice bath or soak them in cold water to prevent the eggs from continually cooking.

6. Allow the eggs to sit in the cold water for 5 minutes or until they are completely cool. Store in the fridge for 3-5 days.
