Boiling eggs can be tricky when you don’t know how long they should be boiled to the point of being fully cooked. You can easily undercook them by leaving you wet and soggy eggs or overcook them to the point of the eggs being very hard to deshell.

How to Hard Boil Eggs Perfectly Step by Step

Knowing how to cook boiled eggs perfectly is a must for everybody, especially around Easter. We all have our own personal preference on how we like our boiled eggs, and now, I’m going to help you figure out how to prepare them perfectly.

How long do you boil eggs

STEP 1

Prepare the pan on the stove and turn it to medium heat. Put enough cold water to cover the eggs by about an inch. 

STEP 2

Slowly drop the eggs to avoid them cracking in the pan.

STEP 3

After putting the eggs in the pan, let the water get warm, then stir the eggs gently. The water movement helps center the egg yolk.

STEP 4: Now, this is where you choose how you want your eggs.

For soft boiled eggs, simmer for four minutes. For semi-firm yolks and hard whites, simmer for five minutes. For hard-boiled eggs, simmer for eight minutes.

STEP 5

Use a large spoon to remove the eggs from the water. Transfer them to a container with cold water to cool them down and make it easier to slowly deshell.

STEP  6: Enjoy!

Put your freshly boiled egg in your favorite salad, sandwich, or even eat it as it is.
