You would think that you can just put some eggs in water and boil them and that's it...but...I am 42 years old and FINALLY found out how to do this the perfect way.
I got this recipe from Rachael Ray.
- Place your eggs into a large pot and cover them with COLD water.
- Turn heat on HIGH
- cook on high until the water starts to boil...when you see the water boil, reduce heat to MEDIUM and set a timer now for 12 minutes.
- when the timer goes off, turn heat OFF and cover pan.
Set timer now for 10 minutes. When this timer goes off, gently pour off the hot water and keep running cold water over the eggs. I like to add a bunch of ice to my pan and let the water get freezing cold.
By running the cold water over the eggs, this is cooling them down AND most of all...shrinking the egg inside the shell which makes peeling the egg a breeze.
+ By cooling the eggs down this quick way...you are also able to eat or use the eggs within about 1/2 hour of cooking time......
