easy and nutritious


Ingredients You'll Need

6 large eggs
Cold water
Ice
EQUIPMENT
Saucepan
Timer
Slotted spoon
Bowl


Directions

Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Cover with a lid and bring water to a boil over high heat; when the water has reached a boil, set the timer for the desired time. Boil for 6 - 7 minutes over medium-high heat for perfect hard-boiled eggs.
For soft-boiled eggs boil eggs for 4 minutes

For slightly soft-boiled eggs boil eggs for 5 minutes

For custardy yet firm soft-boiled eggs boil eggs for 6 minutes

For creamy hard-boiled eggs boil eggs for 7 minutes

For firm yet still creamy hard-boiled eggs boil eggs for 8 minutes

For very firm hard boiled eggs boil eggs for 9 minutes

Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a large bowl with ice cold water and let them cool for a couple of minutes. Or you can place them under cool running water to stop the cooking.
Peel and serve the eggs immediately. You can sprinkle some paprika or chives on top.
