How to Boil the Perfect Egg Every Time

Boiling eggs is a simple task, but it can be tricky to get it just right. Whether you’re making deviled eggs for a party or just want a snack, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to boil the perfect egg every time.

Choose the Right Eggs

The first step in boiling the perfect egg is choosing the right eggs. Fresh eggs will give you the best results, so look for eggs that are as fresh as possible. If you can, buy your eggs from a local farmer or farm stand. This will ensure that your eggs are fresh and delicious.

Fill Your Pot

Once you have your eggs, fill a pot with enough cold water to cover them completely. Place the pot on the stove and turn it on high heat until it boils. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

Time It Right

Timing is key when boiling an egg. If you want a soft-boiled egg, let it simmer for about 4 minutes before turning off the heat and letting it sit in hot water for another 5 minutes. For a hard-boiled egg, let it simmer for 10 minutes before removing from heat and letting sit in hot water for another 10 minutes.

Once your eggs are done cooking, remove them from the hot water and place them in an ice bath to stop them from cooking further. Peel off the shells and enjoy your perfectly boiled eggs.
