PERFECT HARD-BOILED EGGS



Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs image

I believe this to be the perfect recipe for hard-boiled eggs. The eggs peel so easily, most can be peeled in one simple motion. The egg yolk itself is a nice yellow color without the greenish tinge that sometimes occurs when making hard-boiled eggs.

PERFECT BOILED EGGS



Perfect Boiled Eggs image

If your goal is perfectly smooth, blemish-free boiled eggs that jump out of their shells every single time, I've got bad news: No technique in the world can promise that level of perfection. But armed with data from scientific tests done with more than 90 testers and more than 700 boiled eggs, this technique for boiled eggs - technically steamed, as they cook in just an inch of water - will maximize your odds. Fresher eggs will take slightly longer to peel, but they should peel just as cleanly as older eggs. The eggs in this recipe should be cooked straight from the refrigerator; reduce cooking times by 1 minute if using room-temperature eggs.

Time 10m

Number Of Ingredients 1

Up to 12 eggs (see note)

Steps:

  • Find a lidded saucepan large enough to allow your eggs to comfortably fit on the bottom in a single layer. Add 1 inch of water, cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Gently lower eggs into the saucepan using a slotted spoon or a steamer basket. (It's O.K. if the eggs are partly submerged on the bottom of the pot, or elevated on a steamer rack and not submerged at all.) Cover pan and cook eggs, adjusting the burner to maintain a vigorous boil, 6 minutes for a warm liquid yolk and firm whites, 8 1/2 minutes for a translucent, fudgy yolk, or 11 minutes for a yolk that is just barely firm all the way through.
  • Drain eggs, then peel and eat immediately, or transfer them to a plate and allow them to cool naturally before storing in the refrigerator for up to a week directly in their shell. (A small dot made with a permanent marker on the top of each cooked egg will ensure you don't mix them up with the raw eggs.) Do not shock them in an ice bath after cooking; this makes them more difficult to peel.

THE EASIEST PERFECT HARD BOILED EGGS (TECHNIQUE)



The Easiest Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs (Technique) image

There are many ways that work well to boil eggs such as adding salt (who needs that extra salt?), using a needle to poke a hole in the eggs (way too tedious and unnecessary), adding ice or vinegar for easy peeling, etc., etc., etc. Unfortunately, those methods are all too time consuming for most people. I've been using this technique since I was a teenager (so long ago). This technique is perfect and the absolute simplest above all the others. Oh, and no utensils needed either, how cool is that!?! :) A similar method for pasta is Recipe #30358

Time 21m

Yield 6 eggs

Number Of Ingredients 2

6 large eggs
water

Steps:

  • Place eggs in medium saucepan. Cover with water 1" above the eggs. Place on stovetop over high heat.
  • Bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and cover. Let sit 18-20 minutes.
  • Pour cold tap water into pot allowing the hot water out by holding the pot on a slant. Let eggs sit in cold water for 1-2 minutes, then peel easily.
  • NOTE: (no garbage disposal/shells for gardening method) I peel the eggs under running cold water with a colander underneath to catch the shells. I placed the eggs onto paper towels to rid excess moisture for egg salad, OR place peeled eggs into a bowl of cold water, cover and refrigerate where they keep for about 4-5 days.

SOFT BOILED EGGS



Soft boiled eggs image

Struggle to make perfect soft-boiled eggs with a runny centre? Just follow our foolproof recipe, then serve with toast soldiers or in a salad niçoise

Provided by Miriam Nice

Categories     Breakfast, Brunch

Time 5m

Number Of Ingredients 2

2 large free-range eggs, at room temperature
toast to serve

Steps:

  • Fill a medium sized saucepan with water and bring to a rolling boil.
  • Make sure your eggs aren't fridge cold. By having the eggs at room temperature, it will be less of a shock for the egg reaching the hot water and therefore less likely to crack. You can also use an egg pricker to make a very small hole in each egg before boiling, which will also reduce the chances of it cracking in the heat. Slowly lower the eggs into the water using a spoon.
  • Set your timer for 4-5 mins for runny/dippy eggs to serve with soldiers, or 6-7 mins for soft-boiled eggs for a salad. If serving in a salad, plunge the eggs into a bowl of cold water as soon as the timer goes off - this will stop them cooking and cool the shells quickly for peeling.

  • Gently lower the eggs into boiling water. A fine mesh strainer or spider-skimmer work well for this. (Tip from a reader comment: “I took my boiling water off the burner and let it settle a moment and then gently lowered my eggs. Worked great! I had several broken eggs on my first batch when I put the eggs in while the water was at a rolling boil. Hope this helps someone because this recipe is a game-changer!”)
  • Boil on high for 30 seconds, then turn the burner to the lowest setting for a very gentle (not rolling) simmer. Cover the pan with a lid and wait 13 minutes. (It’s ok if the water doesn’t come back up to a rolling boil for the 30 seconds.)
