Hard Boiled Eggs

Ok, you might think it’s silly to write about such an easy thing to do. You might be surprised to find that a lot of people are not sure how to do basic things such as prepare an egg, or make a grilled cheese sandwich, or cook a pot of rice. If it turns out that people want more simple recipes like this, I’ll add more in the future. Just let me know!



  • Eggs!


Put all the eggs you want to boil into the pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 13 minutes. Cool by running cold water over the eggs in the sink.

That’s all folks!


  • I’ve heard all kinds of more complicated methods: adding vinegar, cooling in ice water, cooking for more time. I just like to keep it super simple. These will stay fresh in the fridge for at least a week.
  • Here’s an interesting way to tell the difference between boiled and raw eggs: spin it on the counter. The hard boiled egg will spin easily. The raw one will wobble.
  • You can tell how fresh your eggs are if they float on end. When they float, they are not exactly fresh. :)
