How to hard boil eggs
Place egg/s in a saucepan covered in cold water.
Bring water to the boil.
Take off heat and let stand for 10-15 minutes.
Run under cool water to cool the egg.
Peel off the shell.
- Use an egg at room temperature, this stops the shell from cracking.
- Use a slotted spoon to take eggs out of the saucepan.
- Run them under some cold water so you can easily peel away the shell.
- Don’t put them in the fridge to cool, it makes them harder to peel.
