How to Make Perfectly Hard-Boiled Eggs

I am a complete failure in the kitchen.  I don’t follow recipes well, I’m clumsy, and I often forget that I have something in the oven and I burn it.  So if I’m going to make anything, it has to be dead simple.  Trust me, perfectly boiling an egg isn’t as easy as it sounds – I often overdo it and get a chalky yolk with a weird green ring around it.

So I appreciated these instructions from Bon Appetit on how to make a hard boiled egg, the super-easy way:

Place 6 large eggs (older eggs will be easier to peel) in a medium heavy saucepan. Add water to cover by 1 1/2″. Bring to a boil; immediately remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool. Gently crack the eggs and peel under running water for ease.

I know many of you will read the above and say “duh”.  But maybe you needed a reminder, and with Easter coming up this weekend, you can now make perfect hard-boiled eggs.
