Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Cooking perfect hard-boiled eggs may seem simple enough, but here are a few tips to make the process easier.  To determine the difference between raw eggs and hard-boiled eggs in the refridgerator, spin the egg on your counter. The raw egg will not spin; the hard boiled egg will spin upright like a top!

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs

Instructions

  1. Place the eggs in a pot of cool water, then bring to a boil, cooking a total of 10-15 minutes.
  2. Next, immediately cool the eggs under cold running water to prevent the brown/green ring from forming around the yolk.
  3. Though you can easily peel hard boiled eggs under running cool water, you can also try this "blowing trick." Simply remove the shell from both ends of the egg and blow the egg out with your mouth. (For personal consumption only) :)

Hi, I’m Jason Hill, host of YouTube’s “Chef Tips” series. I went to culinary school in 1998, and worked as a chef for many years here in Southern California. Some of the great people I worked with included Homaro Cantu (Restaurant Charlie Trotter, Chicago’s Moto); James Boyce (Le Cirque, The Phoenician, Loews Coronado, Studio, Cotton Row),  and famed French chef Michel Richard (Citrus, Citronelle, Bistro M, Central). After quitting the restaurant business to start a family, I began writing a cooking column for several newspapers (Associated Press, Freedom News Service and Knight-Ridder Tribune), and launched my YouTube channel, “Chef Tips,” in 1997. I love sharing my knowledge of cooking with others, and I hope you enjoy my recipes!
