I believe this to be the perfect recipe for hard-boiled eggs. The eggs peel so easily, most can be peeled in one simple motion. The egg yolk itself is a nice yellow color without the greenish tinge that sometimes occurs when making hard-boiled eggs.

EPIC FAIL! I followed this recipe exactly. Nearly ever egg cracked and leaked as soon as I put it in the water and not a single one was cooked all the way through. Read More

My eggs were easy to peal and cooked perfectly, with no gray around the yolk. I waited until the water was at a rolling boil and cooked my eggs for 2 minutes, instead of one. One egg cracked and I removed it from the water, but all the others were good. Then, I removed the pot from heat and let the eggs sit covered in the hot water for 25 minutes. I used cold water and ice to shock them after that. They came out egg-cellent! Read More
