  • Place eggs in the saucepan, it does not matter if it is 2 or 12 eggs, this way works. Just cover them with cold water, not too deep. Do NOT salt the water.
  • Place on burner on HIGH heat. Once they start to boil turn on the timer to 3 minutes. When the timer goes off, quickly take off the heat, put on the lid and reset the timer to 8 minutes.
  • When 8 minutes are up, take to sink and run cold water over them for about a minute, let them soak a bit to cool off. They will peel best if you set them in the refrigerator for about 1/2 to 1 hour, but you can eat them now.

Notes

I've also heard you can put ice cubes in the water and this cools them down faster.

    I haven't made this yet. But will do so. I have a suggestion instead of refrigerating to cool further, I put ice cubes in the water and this cools them down faster. Carol
