Do you put water in the muffin cups?





Quoting Gealach:

Sit them in a muffin tin

I wait until the water is boiling, then put them eggs in, then boil for 10 minutes, then I shut off the burner & leave them there in the pot on the burner for 5 minutes.

This is the best way starting them in cold water ! I cook for a living

Quoting RosePetalTears:

i bring mine to a boil, pull it from the heat and cover the pan. Then i let them sit for 13 mins 30 seconds, change out the hot water with cold and add ice. Then they sit there till the ice melts.
