How to Boil an Egg

I can never remember how to simply boil an egg. I have to look it up every single time I make them. I decided to add this to the blog in case there are others in the same boat.

Step 1
Place eggs in the saucepan, it does not matter if it is 2 or 12 eggs, this way works. Just cover them with cold water, not too deep. Do NOT salt the water. Place on burner on HIGH heat.

Step 2
Place on burner on HIGH heat. Once they start to boil turn on the timer to 3 minutes.

Step 3
When the timer goes off, quickly take off the heat, put on the lid and reset the timer to 8 minutes.

Step 4
When 8 minutes are up, take to sink and run cold water over them for about a minute, let them soak a bit to cool off. They will peel best if you set them in the refrigerator for about 1/2 to 1 hour, but you can eat them now!
