How to Hard Boil an Egg

This is probably the five thousandth method to boil an egg that you’re looking at. Everyone does it differently and everyone claims it’s the perfect fail-safe! I boiled my first egg a week ago. That’s right. Now you might be all, what does she know, she’s done it only about a handful of times in her whole life! Trust me, gentle reader, because every one of those times was PERFECT!

Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover them with water so they are submerged by an inch. Bring to a boil on medium high and boil for 1 minute. Take off heat, cover fully and let sit for 12 minutes. Plunge the eggs in cold water to stop them cooking further. Crack and peel once cooled. Voilà!
