I've tried many different ways to make a great, easy, hard-boiled egg with a soft white and a nice fluffy yolk that's not grey on the outside. After lots of trial and error, I've finally done it. After cooking I usually keep them in the shell until I need them. Enjoy!

Not quite all the way done in the center but I'll take that over an overdone gray yolk. Read More
