Hard Boiled Eggs

hard boiled eggs


Save money on hard boiled eggs by cooking them correctly so you don't lose part of the egg trying to peel it.  Begin by putting the eggs in a pan with cold water.  Put them on the stove, turn on the heat, and bring them to a boil.  Then turn the heat down, and let them simmer for 15 minutes.  After they are cooked, take them off the stove, and put ice cubes in the water too cool them down.  When the eggs are cool, it will be easy to remove the shell.
