Making hard boiled eggs? This is the easiest way for perfect yellow yolks every single time.
You will want your eggs to be room temperature, I usually put them out on the counter for about an hour before I make them, this helps the yolk to be centered in the egg and less likely to crack during cooking.
Bring a pot of water up to a hard boil. You need the pot to be large enough that all of your eggs will be fully submerged. Once the water is boiling, using a slotted spoon carefully add in your eggs.
Boil for 12 minutes. I promise 12 minutes is the magic number. As they cook, prepare an ice bath. Using a large bowl, add in ice and cold water.
With your slotted spoon remove your eggs and place them in an ice bath. The ice bath will shock the eggs to that they stop cooking so your yolks stay bright yellow. Something about the ice bath also makes it easier to peel the egg once they are cool.
Once they are shocked, you can drain the water off and enjoy! If you don’t eat all of your eggs right away, you can store them in a dry container in the refrigerator until you want them.
