How to hard boil eggs

1.

Place egg/s in a saucepan covered in cold water.

2.

Bring water to the boil.

3.

Take off heat and let stand for 10-15 minutes.

4.

Run under cool water to cool the egg.

Tips…

  • 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.
