Making Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

Cooking Tip of the Day

Do your hard-boiled eggs suffer from gray ring around the yolk?

I have the perfect fool-proof method for boiling eggs. I learned this tip years ago from Pillsbury ….

Place your eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water.

Heat to boiling, then reduce the heat to a slight simmer.

Simmer for 15 minutes.

Carefully pour off the hot water and then let cold water gently run over the eggs for a minute or two.

Allow the eggs to sit in the cool water for about 5 minutes, then remove the eggs and allow to completely cool.
