Put the eggs in cold water, bring the water to a boil (without a lid on), an let them boil for 7mins

Put the eggs in a pot, and cover with cold water until the eggs are just covered. Stove on high, and wait until the water boils. When it comes to a rolling boil, I remove the pot from the heat, cover, and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Comes out perfectly every time!

Put a few in a pan a little over 1/2 full. Boil for 20 min or till an egg cracks. Put in ice water for 5 min and peel.

I don't....because I don't eat them. I always end up messing them up anyhow so if I ABSOLUTELY need a hard boiled egg for something I buy a package of pre-cooked hard boiled eggs from egglands best

Throw it in a pot, make sure the egg is completely covered by water, boil on medium-high with an egg timer.



Let sit, then carefully take off the shells after running under cold water.

I did hear if you put a little bit of vinegar in the water that it makes the shell come off clean.

I've never heard of that! Wish we had some vinegar :(
But I can't get to the store until late tonight probably, and I want to get the eggs boiled so we can dye them this afternoon. Oh well! Thanks for the tip though, I'll have to remember that!

Don't you need the vinegar to dye the eggs?

I've never heard that! I did hear that baking soda did the same thing, but that does NOT work. It actually makes it worse, and makes you smash eggs in anger :oops::lol:



I always break off both ends, completely cover one end with my mouth, and blow really hard. It gets air under the shell, and the shell basically just slips off.
