This easy method for making Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs will get you perfect results every time!
Place cold eggs into a medium stainless steel saucepan and cover with cold water, filling 1-inch over the surface of the eggs. Cover with lid and bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat.
As soon as the water comes to a boil, set your timer to 7 minutes (for perfectly hard-boiled eggs) and reduce the heat to medium-low (to keep at a medium boil).
Prepare a bowl of ice water and as soon as the timer is done, turn off the heat and transfer the eggs into the ice water. If no ice, strain the hot water from the pan and run cold water over the eggs for about 3-5 minutes until the water stays cold. (The cold water cools them quickly and prevents eggs from cooking further).
Leave eggs in cold water until cooled. Refrigerate eggs once cool and peel when ready to use.
