how long do I boil eggs for?

Recommended Posts

This is so funny because I had a conversation with my Mom, Aunt and Grandma about this. A lot of people think they need to cook a long time. The way I do it is put the eggs in cold water, add salt, bring to a boil for 10 minutes then let the water cool down. By running the eggs under cold water, it makes the eggs easier to peel...thats it!

 

I question myself all of the time!

I was just cracking up that this was on here. Every time I need to boil eggs I have to call my FMIL cuz I never remember how to do it!

I never remember if you put the eggs in before boiling the water, or after the water is boiling. I used to call and ask people, but they probably think I am a twit for asking so many times, so now I just google it!!!!

My aunt says to boil the perfect egg you do this:

 

1. Boil water (very bubbly)

2. Put your egg(s) in the boiling water and keep them there for 3 minutes.

3. Turn off the burner and keep covered for 15 minutes.

 

This makes it so the shell comes off really easy and the yolk is perfectly cooked...good luck!

 

OMG, I tried this- what a difference! So easy to peel

Since this forum seems to be such a goldmine of information! Any body have any tips on poaching eggs? I can never get them perfect!
