This should be simple, a no brainer, however I never can get it right! This year I am going to follow the directions and hope for those perfect boiled eggs!
Secrets to a Perfect Boiled Egg
Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Cover with 1 inch of cold water. Cover pot and bring to boil. Remove pan from heat as soon as boil is reached. Let the eggs stand, covered, in the hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (about 12 minutes for medium, about 18 for extra-large). Cool immediately in an ice-water bath.
