Hard Boiled Eggs, the Easiest method for Perfect Eggs.

My Hard Boiled Eggs Video From YouTube

As a culinary school graduate there were many things we were taught. Eggs are one of the fundamental basics of cooking. In one of my classes one instructor was asking another how he hard boils his eggs. Each of them had different answers, but the same result. Some people put the eggs in when the water is boiling some, put them in right away, some turn the heat off and cover the pot and let them stand for a few minutes. There are probably countless ways, but this way has always worked perfectly for me. Ironically, my little brother is the one who taught me this method. Knowing how to perfectly hard boil them without overcooking them is important. If they are overcooked, you will see discoloration on the outside of the yolk. Make sure to buy fresh eggs! Older eggs will stand up near the bottom of the pan, and if they’re really old they will float to the top of the water. Also, remember to get yourself set up with an ice bath when the eggs are finished cooking.

You can notice the grey discoloration around the outside of the yolks.. these are overcooked.


  1. Put a four quart pot of COLD water on the stove with desired amount of eggs.
  2. Turn heat to medium-high
  3. Once water turns to a rolling boil, set a timer for 8:00 minutes.
  4. Once the timer goes off, take the eggs off the heat and put into the ice bath.

That’s it! It’s very easy and works for me every time. If you watched and enjoyed the YouTube video, I would appreciate it if you click the “thumbs up” button and consider subscribing! I will be posting regularly on Thursdays, and maybe more. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment here or on the video and I’ll be sure to respond!

  1. so, question for you….I was on vacation once and over heard a kid under 11 ask for a 3 (or 7) minute hard-boiled egg. I know I have the timing off on what he requested, but I thought it sounded so snotty for a little kid! lol

    1. Well theres one thing I think he may have meant. For example. At the restaurant I work at currently, we have a caesar salad on the menu that comes with a soft boiled egg, so the yolk is thicker but still runny when you cut into it, served cold. They’re delicious. To make them you throw them into already boiling water for 7 minutes and 30 seconds, then ice bath that. Maybe he meant something like that? Or, considering he was a kid, he may have just heard 7 minute hard boiled egg somewhere and didnt know exactly what he was talking about hahaha.
