The Perfect "Hard Boiled" Egg
But no more I say!!! There is a better way to "boil" an egg........ steam! That's right, the perfect "hard boiled" egg is steamed. It is easy to do, you don't end up with those broken, ozzing eggs, and the best part is they peel like heaven!
Once the water in the pot starts to boil, put a cover on top. I just laid a cookie sheet over my holey pot because I don't have a lid for it. Now some of you may enjoy a soft boiled egg.... I do not. I like my eggs done, so I set the timer for 20 minutes and let those eggs steam away. If you want a softer egg, go for about 8 minutes. Once the time is up, let the eggs cool and peel. You will be amazed at your perfect, non-pitted eggs. No longer will your hard boiled eggs be shamed into hiding in egg salad, they can sit proudly upon a plate and say "look at me, love, me, eat me!"
