How to Hard-Boil Eggs

Hard-Boiled Eggs

Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Heat over high heat just to boiling.

Remove from burner. Cover pan. Let eggs stand in hot water about 12 minutes for large eggs (9 minutes for medium eggs; 15 minutes for extra large).

Drain immediately and serve warm. OR, cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then refrigerate.
