How to make the Perfect Hardboiled Egg

Cooking for 10 minutes will give an ever-so-soft center to the yolk. For completely firm yolks, cook an additional minute.

Ingredients

4–8 SERVINGS

  • 4–8 large eggs
  • Preparation

    Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat.1-1

    Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower eggs into water one at a time. Cook 10 minutes, maintaining a gentle boil. Carefully transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and let cool until just slightly warm, about 2 minutes.

    Gently crack eggs all over and peel, starting from the fat end containing the air pocket.

    Do Ahead: Eggs can be cooked and peeled 3 days ahead. Transfer to an airtight container and chill.
