Hard Boiled Egg


The key to a successful hard boiled egg is gentle heat and slow cooking. By using this method, the egg is moist and tender with no off odor and a perfectly yellow egg yolk.

Overexposure to high heat releases sulfur from the egg white and iron from the yolk, which results in that unpleasant odor and gray-green coloration on the outer yolk.

Place eggs in a pan large enough to hold the eggs so they are covered by two inches of cold water. Bring to a boil, turn off the heat, cover and let sit for 12 minutes.

Plunge the eggs into an ice bath and let cool completely.

Crack and peel for delicate and delicious hard boiled eggs!

    Hello Trish, how are you?

    Your cooking tips are the best. Brady cooked thethe apple cider braised chicken over the weekend and it was one of the most delicious meal I’ve ever had!

    I’m going to follow your instructions for the hard boiling egg, most of the time mine does not look that good 🙁

    ps.: I can send you some pictures, if you want. If you want to post any on your blog just let me know the size and I’ll resize to fit beautifully. They did not come as good as I would like, but they are not that bad. I’m going to try and make a post about the class this weekend, and of course, I’ll post a link to your blog.

    Take care
