How to "Hard-Boil" Eggs





If RANDOMLY you should ever need to hard-boil eggs, (and with easter just a week away..) here is the easiest way to do so.

Duration: 10-20 minutes


The Goods:

Eggs

Add cold water to cover eggs at 1 inch.
Heat over high heat just to boiling.
Remove from burner.
Cover pan.
Let eggs sit in hot water for about 12 minutes for large eggs (9 minutes for medium eggs; 15 minutes for extra large).
