MY FAVORITE WAY TO HARD BOIL EGGS
1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Once the water’s boiling, gently add eggs into the water. Boil for 7 minutes for a softer yolk (or up to 10 minutes if you like your yolk totally hard cooked).
2. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water. Let eggs sit in the water until the shells are cool. Then peel & eat or refrigerate for up to a week.
