How to Boil Eggs - Easy Hard Boiled Eggs

Welcome to the first ever, How-To Tuesday!

First up...How to boil eggs. I know, it sounds so simple. But it's just one of those things that I have to look up each and every time I do it.

How to Boil Eggs

Believe it or not, I just started boiling my own eggs. I avoided it for years because every time I tried I either cracked every single egg (what a waste!) or I overcooked them, or undercooked them. Anything that could go wrong boiling an egg...I've done.

But I am happy to say I finally have it down to a science and you can too!

How To Boil Eggs - Easy Hard Boiled Eggs

1. Place desired amount of eggs in pot.
2. Fill with water so the water completely covers all eggs.
3. Place on stove top and bring to boil.
4. As soon as the water starts boiling, remove from burner and cover with lid for....

  • 4 minutes: soft boiled eggs (still slightly runny)
  • 6 minutes: medium boiled eggs **(shown in the image above. This is my favorite!)
  • 10 minutes: hard boiled eggs
5. Rinse under cold water.
    Then you can either peel and eat, or save in the fridge for up to 5 to 7 days.

That's it! Simple, right?! ;)
