making hard boiled eggs

In my extended family, we are the house to make and bring deviled eggs for our family gatherings.  Hard boiled eggs don’t always turn out right.  Sometimes they can be under done, sometimes they have a ring around them.

How long to boil hard boiled eggs?

I have a little timer.  It helps tell me when the eggs are done.  It turns colors to know when your eggs are soft and when they are hard boiled.

This is a great way to make deviled eggs, potato salad and egg salad for sandwiches to name a few!

What’s the catch?  Nothing! It’s how we boil eggs for Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Instructions:
Place the eggs in the pan and cover them with cold water.
Put the egg timer in the water with the eggs.
Turn the stove on medium heat and bring them to a boil.
Let the eggs boil for 5 minutes and then turn off the heat and cover the pot.
Allow the eggs to sit for 10 minutes.
Check the egg timer to see if it has completely turned colors.  If it has they are done.  If not, give it 5 minutes and check again.
Once the timer has changed colors, the eggs are done.
Drain the water from the pot and replace it with ice water.
Allow the eggs to sit for 5 minutes before beginning to peel them.
Once cool, peel and enjoy.

  1. I love hard boiled eggs but I always forget to make them because like you said it is a pain to boil a pan of eggs.

        1. Yes Linda. You have to have the cover on to make sure that the microwaves are blocked, allowing them to steam. I hope that helps.
