  • 8 large eggs
  • water


  • Prep - Place cold eggs in a large saucepan in a single layer. Fill the saucepan with cold water at least 1 inch over top of the eggs.
  • Cook - Cover the saucepan with a lid and bring to a boil.
  • Rest - Remove the saucepan from heat and let the eggs sit in water for 15 minutes.
  • Cool, Peel and Serve - Drain and run cold water over the eggs to cool them. Peel and serve.


  1. If using extra large eggs, allow the eggs to stand in the boiling water a few extra minutes.
  2. Store your hard boiled eggs, peeled or unpeeled, in the fridge for up to a week! Use your leftover eggs to prepare a variety of different meals for the rest of the week (see above) or you can take them as a snack with you when you're on the run - just grab and go!
