Easy Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

My favorite way to make hard boiled eggs! This Easy Hard Boiled Eggs recipe is quick, easy, and as close to perfection as you can get!

Here is the recipe:

  • Eggs (However many you want to make)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Take out a sauce pan big enough for however many eggs you’re using so that your eggs will be in a single layer and not on top of each other. Add in cold water to your sauce pan so that it’s 1 inch above your eggs. Put your sauce pan on the stove top and turn your burner on Medium Heat for 3:00. After 3:00 turn your burner on High Heat until they start to boil. Once boiling keep them on the heat for 1:00. Take your eggs off the heat, turn your burner off, and cover your sauce pan. Keep covered for 10:00. After 10:00 take out a bowl/container and fill it with cold water + ice, get a slotted spoon, and then transfer your eggs from the sauce pan to the bowl/container. Let them cool off for 15:00-20:00. Enjoy!

  • I’m trying this recipe out next week for sure!
    I make hard boiled eggs every week but they never peel well for me. Thank you. I love the website.

    • Becky, I used to struggle with the peeling too and I found the solution. Fresh eggs don’t peel well, the shells stick to the membrane. 1 week old eggs, in the fridge, peel much better. So plan ahead and buy a new dozen or so when you cook the first batch. That way they will sit in your fridge for a week or week and half. Eggs stay fresh in the fridge for a few weeks so it’s OK. Derek’s cooking method is spot on!
