Cooking a Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg is so simple and you need no skills for it. In my family some like hard-boiled others like a runny egg yolk (that includes me 🙂 ), but when it comes to eggs in salads or any other dish, you always need hard-boiled eggs. I was surprised to discover that some people slow-cook eggs or use different methods and here I thought my version was the only version,because that’s the way it’s always been done in my family. This quick recipe will teach you how to avoid overcooked blue-ish/gray egg yolks and get those perfect results every time. Let’s also not forget about Easter when you color eggs and need them to be so perfect inside!

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs Ingredients:

  • 7 large eggs – refrigerated
  • cold water

1. Place 7 refrigerated eggs in a small pot and cover with cold water. Cover with lid and bring to boil on medium-high or high heat.

2. As soon as it boils, lower heat to low and slightly open the lid. Cook for exactly 7 minutes, not more. Pour cold water into cooked eggs and keep them in cold water for 10-15 minutes until they are no longer warm. Peel the eggs when cooled and they are ready to eat or use. The yolk center will be perfect yellow. Enjoy!!
