Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs: lovely yellow egg yolk, great for salads, any dish or breakfast, ready in 7 minutes. | olgainthekitchen.com

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 πŸ™‚ ), 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 EggsΒ 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!!

  • Last night I spent 4 hours cleaning every millimeter of our 2400 sf home. That’s when I realized that our 2-yr old boy is going to be an artistπŸ˜„ from floor to the top of the ceiling, there were hundreds of colorful pencil, pen, crayola drawings. Thanks to the magic eraser...it did the trick. 😍 I hide the pens from them and give to use when it’s appropriate but they always tend to find them.

Woke up to the pouring rain outside my window and chilly kitchen. Decided to treat myself for the hard work with our fave Pumpkin! 🧑 (For recipe + video, click on link in bio πŸ‘‰ @olgainthekitchen ) #olgainthekitchen
