To make the perfect hard boiled eggs, start with bringing your eggs to room temperature so they will avoid cracking. Place the eggs in cold water leaving about an inch of water on top. Bring eggs to a boil. After eggs have boiled for about a minute, remove from heat and cover with a lid. Leave eggs untouched for about 15-20 minutes to allow the cooking process to continue. After 15-20 minutes, replace hot water with cold water and allow to sit for another 10 minutes. Your eggs should be easy to peel and ready to use. Enjoy!
