Questions for the Cook

Back by popular demand – the perfect hard boiled egg

Hi Rachael -

Thank you for your tv show. Please teach me how to make successful hard boiled eggs with shells that don’t stick to the eggs.

Once again thank you,

Emerald Lee

Dear Emerald -

We get asked this question a lot – here you go!

1. Place the eggs in a pot, cover with water and bring to full boil.

2. Turn off the heat, cover the pot and let stand for 10 minutes.

3. Drain, then crack the eggs by shaking the pot and running them under cold water until cool enough to handle.

4. Peel the eggs and enjoy!

Here are some of Rach’s favorite hard boiled egg recipes:
