How do you boil eggs?

I want to boil them so my kids and I can color them

Place eggs in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and cover them with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water. How much water will depend on the size of the pot, but in general, a bigger pot is better. Crowding the eggs risks cracking them.

Bring the water to a full boil, uncovered, then remove the pot from the heat and cover it. Let the pot stand untouched for 17 minutes.

Remove the boiled eggs from the water and transfer them to a bowl of cold water for 15 minutes. They are ready to decorate.

I have to cook, otherwise, I'd starve to death. Or, I'd weigh 800 lbs from eating pizza and fast food all the time.

I love hard boiled eggs.

Put however many eggs in a pan. Put water in it so that the eggs are floating some. Hear to a rolling boil, then boil for eight minutes. Drain...

Put eggs in boiling water for a few minutes. They have to stay in the shell by the way. Lol.

Start the eggs in cold water, when the water comes to a boil, shut off the burner and let them set for a few minutes. When almost cool, drain eggs. When ready to color ,add a little white vinegar to each diluted color cup.This keeps the color on the egg.
