I'm going to take my eggs and these are large eggs. I'm going to place them in a single layer in the bottom of a pot or saucepan.
You want one that has a lid to go with it and we'll take it over to the sink and fill it with enough cold water to cover the eggs with one inch of water. Then we'll place this on the stove and bring it to a boil over high heat. You don't want to get too violent of a rolling boil otherwise the eggs may crack. So once it just comes to a simmer you'll put the lid on and immediately turn off the heat. For super soft boiled eggs let them sit in the hot water for four minutes. For a little more cook on the egg white let them sit for six minutes. If you want a hard-boiled egg you're gonna let it sit in the hot water for eight to twelve minutes depending on how cooked you want your egg yolk.

If you're making deviled eggs or dyeing Easter eggs you'll want to do the full 12 minutes. While that's sitting in the hot water you'll want to take a large bowl and fill it with ice and cold water to create an ice bath. Then when the eggs are done you'll remove them with some tongs and plunge them into the ice bath so that the eggs stop cooking. Now everyone's always asking how to make hard-boiled eggs that are easy to peel. There's a lot of tricks out there that work a little bit, maybe, maybe not, like adding vinegar to your boiling water. The best trick I've found is to use steam.
So instead of placing eggs into a pot or a saucepan I'm gonna place them into a steamer basket instead. I've got some cold water in the bottom of a pot and I'm gonna set the steamer basket right over the top and then crank up the heat to bring this to a boil. Then similar to the boiling method, once the water comes to a boil you'll set a timer. The only difference is that this time you'll leave the flame on. Once the eggs have cooled in the ice bath for 10 minutes you can give him a gentle crack and start peeling and you'll see that especially the steamed eggs peel quite well. Another factor that impacts how easy eggs are to peel is the age of the eggs. Older eggs are easier to peel so use those eggs that have been sitting in the fridge for a while and that's it. The only question left is: how do you like your eggs? Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the video description.
