The Perfect Boiled Egg

 
I really love me some eggs! This may not work for those of you who are dying your eggs, because we are going to crack them a hair before we boil them. If you’re dying them, the longer they sit the easier it is to peel. First things first, you need to take a rounded broom or something with a round top on the handle. You will gently tap the bottom of the egg on the handle just enough to put a little crack in the egg. You do not want to break the membrane or you’ll have a mess on your hands.

 

 

 
Then you will put the eggs in the pot and fill it with cold water about an inch and a half above the eggs. Add a teaspoon of salt, this will keep the insides of the eggs from leaking outside the shell. Bring the eggs to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes.
 
When the 10 minutes are up, run cold water over the eggs and let them sit and cool for about 10 minutes.
 
Then roll the shell on the counter, applying pressure with your palm, until there are cracks covering the shell. Slowly peel the shell off. Run under water to make sure all the shells are off, and Voila! The Perfect Egg!!
