Need a refresher on how to hard boil eggs? Here are easy instructions that will make your eggs come out perfectly boiled.

How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs:

Start with cold water in the bottom of a deep pot. Cold water will help prevent the eggs from cracking and should be about an inch higher than the eggs.

Add a pinch or two of salt to the cold water to make peeling easy, especially for deviled eggs.

Bring water to a boil and then cover the pot of eggs. Boil for approximately 12 minutes on medium. Remove from the burner after 12 minutes. You can open one egg to make sure it's hard boiled if you aren't sure if they are done.

Carefully remove the eggs from the pot and place in a bowl of ice water. Cool in the refrigerator. To avoid food borne illnesses, do not leave eggs out on the kitchen counter.

Color cooled eggs or peel them for deviled eggs. Peeling eggs under cold water helps the shell come off a little easier.
