    Thanks so much for this. I always am guessing when making them for Egg salad or Deviled eggs! This is a Great easy reference. Pinned it! :D Ohh and the Chick Peas are a Major hit and have made 4 batches already. Taking in Lunches and Snacks. This is the Snack of 2014 in our house! Thanks a Million! Love your Blog & Recpies

      Jennifer, Thank-you so much for your comment. I am so happy that you are loving the chickpeas, we can’t stop making them either!
      I heard so many people asking about how to make eggs and make sure they do not turn brown inside, so I figured I’d share how I make them, they turn out every time. Thanks so much for pinning!

      I’m so glad you find this helpful! It is the way I have been making them for years and it works out every time, I’m glad I could help you get rid of the guesswork.

    I do this all the time. I put my eggs in an ice bath instead of cold water. I also so on the net that you can make hard boiled eggs by baking them in the oven. Havne’t tried that one yet.

      Rick, I bet the ice works great. I do not have ice available in my kitchen since we have a full fridge, otherwise I would try that too.

    I’m going to give this post to my daughter. She has a hard time boiling eggs perfectly.

    It is ok to make more than one layer of eggs in the pot. I work at a nursing home & we do this all the time. Otherwise it would take forever to boil eggs for 50 ppl!

      Jennifer, thanks for confirming that. I have never made more than a dozen at a time.

    i never had a problem hard boiling eggs until i moved from the east coast to the west coast. now for some reason I just can’t ever get it right. they are always just a little under done :( maybe i will give this a try and see if i have any more luck!

      Please let me know how it works for you!

      It could be the altitude, Miriam. The boiling point of water is lower at higher elevations due to decreased air pressure (essentially the opposite of a pressure cooker), so the water won’t get as hot as it did on the east coast and your food will take longer to cook. Your baking may be affected, too — you may need more dry ingredients and higher heat than your original recipe calls for.

    I will try your method. I am horrible at boiling eggs! At times I will wait until one cracks and the call the rest “done.” Or if I take them off a bit earlier (still too long), the yolk is discoloured grey/blue and it doesn’t make them look all pretty for things like salads.

    Have you ever tried baking them in the oven. If you google it, you will find instructions. Simply place your eggs in a muffin pan and bake in the oven following the instructions . Someone shared this on my Facebook months ago and it worked like a charm!

      I have not tried baking them because I am so used to my method which I know works perfectly. Thanks for letting us know about the other method too.

    We LOVE hard boiled eggs at our house. They are great for a meal or snack. Too bad we can’t have them at school :(

      Julie, Oh no! I have never heard of not being able to bring eggs to school. I assume it is allergy related – that is too bad.

    So simple! Its one of those things that everyone has a method, but this works really well.

    Thanks for the great tip. I always boiled my eggs right through for the cooking. Try adding 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the water.. makes peeling eggs much easier!

    I have always just boiled my eggs until I thought they were done. Yesterday I gave this a try and Eureka..it really works. This is the only way I will be boiling my eggs from now on. Thanks so much for the great tip. :)

      Christina, I’m so happy that you love my method for boiling eggs. Feel free to share with others – I love that it works perfectly every time!

    We boil eggs often for salads and as a snack and the whites are high in protein. My mom and I don’t have a problem with cooking them but have tried several methods we have read in order to peel them more easily. The ice bath method is so far what has worked the best but we haven’t tried bringing them to a boil then the lid and letting them sit for 20 minutes. Will certainly tell my mother in the morning and I’m sure we will be boiling eggs tomorrow to try your method. Thanks for the post. Have printed it and pinned it.

      Christy, Yes, Ice would work great – I do not have ice available because we have no freezer in our kitchen which is why I say cold water. Hope you enjoy this method as much as we do!

    I’ve never had a problem with making hard boiled eggs, but I do know if I leave them in ice cold water for a bit till they are completely cooled the shells come right off whether they are fresh or not, I’ve gotten myself one of those egg genie’s and after they are done in that you still have to let them sit in the cold water to peel nice

      Thanks Lynda!! I think I may have to invest in an ice machine – I appreciate the tip!

    I always wondered how to make the perfect boiled eggs! Mine always turn out too runny or too hard, I will have to try this today!!! It is a lot different than the way I was taught, which was timing them for 8 minutes after they start to boil, leave them boil for the 8 minutes…. Need I say that it never worked out the same! Thanks for the post, I cannot wait to try this!
