How To Make A Hard Boiled Egg
Amazingly, some people do not know how to make a hard boiled egg. It seems simple enough, but there is actually a specific way to make it to keep the egg from cracking, while making sure it has been thoroughly cooked.
To make a hard boiled egg, you will need:
- Water to cover egg(s)
- Dash of salt
- You will need to buy a carton of eggs to start out with. It doesn’t matter which kind or size, although larger eggs may take a little longer to cook while small eggs might take just a little less time. You will also need to find a pot that fits the number of hard boiled eggs you are boiling.
- Place the egg(s) on the bottom of the pot. If you are boiling multiple eggs, make sure they are in a single layer. Do not pile the eggs on top of one another just to make them fit.
- Add water to the pot of raw egg(s), making sure the water completely covers them, then add at least another inch of water. Be careful not to fill it to the top; otherwise, it might overflow once the water begins to boil.
- Sprinkle a dash of salt in the water to help it boil more quickly. Place the pot on a burner and set the heat to medium high. Set the time for twenty minutes, even though the water has not yet started to boil.
- After twenty minutes have passed, the water should have been boiling for about fifteen minutes already; remove the pot of hard boiled eggs from the burner and dump the hot water down the drain. Leave the hard boiled egg(s) in the pot and place it under a stream of cool running water. Once cooled to the touch, place the boiled eggs in a bowl and let them finish cooling.
Now that you know how to make a hard boiled egg, this information will probably stick with you forever. It simply consists of boiling the raw egg in a pot of water. Go peel it and make yourself an egg salad sandwich or a green salad topped with egg slices.
