How to make it

  • If possible set eggs out for an hour before cooking.
  • Lay eggs on their side, will help center the yolk
  • Place enough cold water in the pan to cover the eggs with at least one inch of water.
  • Pour in at least 1 tablespoon salt. Helps to make it easier to peel.
  • Turn heat to high and bring water to a boil, gently stirring eggs with a spoon (I prefer wooden spoon) to help center the yolk.
  • Boil 2 minutes, stirring gently.
  • Turn heat off leaving pot on the burner. No further boiling is necessary. Hard cooking is what forms the grey on the yolk.
  • Set timer for 12 minutes.
  • After 12 minutes, place eggs in a bowl of water filled with ice cubes.
  • Once cooled you can roll the egg around on the counter cracking all the shell and then peel under running water.
  • Cut in half and see perfect yellow yolks no grey, no yolk., smile.
  • I have posted Addictive Deviled Eggs, simply delicious.

    As indicated, this recipe is 100% right on. Eggs are always cooked perfect,over 400 eggs cooked this way, always look like the picture. Seems easy to understand. And it only takes 14 minutes, couldn't be easier and is fail proof.

    I quit using water long ago, i now use a electric steamer and put them in for whatever minute it take and there is not a rotton eggs in the brunch (no pun intended) it solve my problem with the eggs and yes it take longer to cook them, but knowing i won't have to worry when i crack a eggs and finding it not done is priceless to me
    some can do it this way and some my way, i think alot have to do if you happen to lives upstair or downstairs, but this will help others
