How to Make Boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled (hard-cooked) eggs are great for salads, soups, sandwiches, or snacks. Correct cook time and temperature are crucial factors for tasty eggs. The key is in removing the eggs from the stovetop once the water comes to a boil, covering, and then letting them sit in hot water for 7-12 minutes. This simple stovetop skill will help prevent rubbery whites and/or chalky or green yolks.
