Instructions Checklist
  • Place 6 eggs in a single layer in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a gentle boil, uncovered, over medium-high heat. Remove the pan from the heat. Cover and let stand 10 minutes for a barely cooked-through yolk or 15 minutes for a creamy, fully cooked, pale-yellow yolk.

  • Drain off the hot water, then fill the pan with ice water. Let stand until the eggs are cool to the touch.

  • Drain off the water, then gently roll each egg on the countertop to evenly crack the shell. Carefully peel, working under slow- running tap water if the shell is sticking.
