No, this is not some super inventive mind blowing recipe. It is a great technique for making perfect hard boiled eggs. You've seen the not-so-perfect hard boiled egg - green and sickly looking - not exactly something appetizing. If you follow the steps below you will have perfect, thoroughly cooked yellow yolks every time.
Start by putting your eggs in a large saucepan in a single layer.
Cover with cold water.
Place over high heat and bring to a rapid boil. Boil 1 minute before turning the burner off and covering the pan.
Set a timer for 15 minutes and leave your eggs in the covered pan on the warm burner.
After 15 minutes drain eggs and place in a bowl of ice water to cool.
Crack, peel and enjoy!
