The perfect boiled egg.
How many times have you boiled eggs only to end up struggling to get the shell off? Don't you hate the tiresome battle, picking off little pieces of shell.
Struggle no more! I have found the way to make a perfect boiled egg. It works like magic.
First, start with cold water. Put your eggs in cold water, bring the water to a boil. When it starts to boild, time it. Between 8-12 minutes will do it (shorter for softer yokes). Immediately remove the egg and place it in a bowl of ice water. Let them sit there a minute or two (not tooooo long).
The egg shrinks away from the shell and it's so easy to remove - most of the time the shell splits in half and you can slip each end off.
It's revolutionized eggs in my house....and there's nothing better than boiled eggs cut up with plenty of butter and salt!
