Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs Are Easy!
Advertising note: When I link to businesses and / or products, I make a real effort to get paid for that advertising. It doesn't change my opinion, but you should know that I might be paid for my referral.
My grandson showed me how to get perfect hard boiled eggs every time! He’s going to be a chef and he practices his art daily at the restaurant where he works while finishing high school.
Over the holidays, he came to help me prep the food for the big gathering. Two dozen eggs were needed for deviled eggs. Here’s what he taught me and the proof is in the picture.
1- Spin each egg on the counter until it stops wobbling. This centers the yolk so you have an attractive slice for salads and a stable white for deviled eggs.
2- Cold eggs, cold water – 17 minutes on high from start to finish
3- Have an ice bath ready when the timer goes off after 17 minutes
4- When eggs have cooled, remove them from the ice bath, shell them immediately, and store in a gallon storage bag in the fridge.
That’s it. Perfect every time I’ve done it since.
