Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs every time with this easy stove-top method! With a creamy center and easy to peel shells, you can enjoy these as a quick breakfast or protein packed snack on-the-go.
Place eggs on the bottom of a large saucepan, or pot, in one single layer.
Add water so that the eggs are covered by about an inch of water.
Add lemon slices.
Set pot over high heat and bring to a boil.
Turn off the heat.
Cover the pot and let stand over the burner (no heat) for 10 to 12 minutes. Time will depend on the size of the eggs, how many eggs you’re cooking at a time, and also how well you like them cooked.
When time is up, strain water from the pot and put the pot with the eggs under cold running water.
Add few cups of ice cubes to cool them down quickly so they stop cooking.
Peel and serve.
