How To Boil an Egg....Perfectly
Place eggs in a single layer in medium to large saucepan, making sure the eggs are not stacked. Add just enough cold water to cover the eggs by about an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once it starts boiling, remove eggs from heat, cover, & let stand for 15 minutes; drain.
Run cool water over eggs so they are easy to handle, then peel and use to your heart's content!
*With extra large eggs let sit in water for 18 minutes.
