How difficult can it be to boil an egg? The answer is not difficult at all if you don’t care what the egg looks like when it’s peeled. If, however, this matters to you, then the answer is not so straightforward. The reason is that peeling the eggs without the shells sticking and gouging the whites is often problematic. For Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs Every Time, steam them!
Cover pan; steam eggs 14 minutes. If using extra-large eggs, increase time to 16 minutes. (See Note 1)
Rinse eggs in cold water. (See Note 2)
Yield: As many eggs as are steamed. (See Note 3)
