Ok, so you may think this is an easy no brainer. I on the other hand had no idea how to hard boil an egg the "right way" until I wanted to make devilled eggs and had to call my Grandma. (Thanks Grandma!) Now I would say the process of boiling eggs for me is a no brainer, except that I still look at my recipe card for devilled eggs in order to check the timing on how long to boil the eggs.
Here is the way my Grandma taught me how to boil an egg...
Place cold water in a pan to cover your eggs. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn off heat when water comes to a boil and leave the pan on the burner covered for 15 minutes. Then, drain off hot water and immediately submerse eggs in cold ice water to cool. To peel tap each end of egg on the counter and then gently roll egg under slight pressure of your hand to crack shell. Peel shell off and rinse under water to make sure no shell remains.
And now you know how to boil an egg! Anyone hungry for egg salad or is it just me???
