  • Everyone has their own ways of boiling eggs :) me I put the eggs in cold water on the stove and turn the heat on. When it comes to a boil set your timer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, drain the water and run cold water over them until they are completely cooled down. Like I said, everyone has their own system.

  • if you boil them for only 3 minutes, the inside will not be done.

    Put your eggs in cold water on a pot on a stove. Turn the stove on high, put your timer on for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, put the eggs in some ice water to cool down.

  • But a pan of water with the eggs in it on the stove. Boil for 3-8 minutes depending on your preference. Remove from heat, empty water, cool eggs with cold water, peel and eat.

  • I worked in a restaurant where we boiled (rapid boil) for 5 mins - removed from heat but let sit in the water for 45-60 mins. Made peeling easier and allowed eggs to "finish" but not get rubbery (overdone)
