Are you are planning to make hard boiled eggs? Do you want to know how to perfectly make hard-boiled eggs without the green ring around the yolk? Whether you like them soft-boiled, medium-boiled or hard boiled, this easy-to-follow method will show you how to perfectly boil an egg and then easily peel it.

Hard boiled eggs:
1. Place eggs in a saucepan or pot and add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch.
2. Put pan over high heat and bring water to a rolling boil. Remove pan from burner and cover.
3. Let the eggs stand in the hot water for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the eggs.
4. Drain eggs and put in a bowl filled with ice water.

Medium boiled eggs:
Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, then add your eggs and cook for 7 – 8 minutes. Drain and cool in ice water and peel.

Soft boiled eggs:
1. Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cool water.
2. Bring the water to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
3. Remove the eggs from the saucepan and immediately place them in a bowl filled with ice water

To easily peel hard-boiled eggs, crack the shell all over and roll between your hands to separate the membrane from the egg.

there are a few things less appetizing
than an overcooked hard-boiled egg
you’ve got that grayish green ring
around the yolk and those tough rubbery
whites there are a few culprits one is
just cooking your eggs too long and the
other is actually boiling them because
even though we call them hard-boiled or
soft-boiled eggs the key to getting them
just right is to never let the water
reach a full boil in this video I’ll
show you the difference between a soft
medium and hard cooked egg and two
different methods for cooking perfect
hard cooked eggs every time I’ve already
placed my eggs into a saucepan and the
first thing you want to do is cover them
with cold water they should be covered
by about an inch now I’ll put the heat
on medium high now I’m just gonna bring
these up to a brisk simmer now that my
eggs have reached a simmer I’m gonna
start my timer now you want to monitor
the water it should never come to a boil
so you might have to adjust the heat a
little bit to keep it at a brisk simmer
okay at two minutes you have a
soft-boiled egg this is what you would
serve in an egg cup for breakfast after
four and a half minutes you have what we
call a medium cooked egg now at this
point the yolk is solid but it’s a lot
softer and more moist than a hard cooked
egg I’ll show you the difference in just
a minute and after eight minutes you
have a truly hard cooked egg I’m just
gonna bring this back to the sink to
drain now you can just leave the eggs
right in the pot turn on the cold water
and let them run under some cold water
this is gonna cool them down stop the
cooking process and make them easier to
handle I also like to peel my eggs under
running water that helps the shell to
separate a little bit easier from the
white and so you don’t end up getting
something dings and the egg white if
you’re making hard cooked eggs there’s
an even easier method that doesn’t
require such precise timing this is
great if you’re doing a lot of different
things in the kitchen at once so I’ve
started it in exactly the same way I put
my eggs in my pan
cover them with cold water by about an
inch and I just bringing them up to a
brisk sim I think they’re just they’re perfect so
at this point once they reach a brisk
simmer I’m gonna remove the pan off the
heat and let it sit uncovered for
anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes the
water’s gonna cool really gradually and
that’s going to prevent the eggs from
overcooking all right so it’s time to
take a look at our eggs first the
soft-boiled now you can see that the
white is nicely set up and if you dig
your spoon in there look at that runny
yolk this is begging for a piece of
breakfast toast okay moving on now the
medium cooked these are great in salad
anywhere that calls for wedges of cooked
egg beautiful so you see how that yolk
is solid but it’s still very moist and
it’s gonna be a little less crumbly than
the hard cooked egg which I’ll show you
right here here’s the hard cooked
perfect you can see that the color is a
little lighter than the medium cooked
egg and the texture of the yolk is a
little drier it’s gonna be a little more
crumbly best of all there’s no trace of
that gray greenish ring around the yolk
these guys are perfect for deviled eggs
or egg salad.
