HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT HARD-BOILED EGG
If you can find the store-bought hard-cooked peeled eggs (like these from Eggland’s Best eggs) that will make this a lot easier and faster. Place eggs in the bottom of a saucepan; add enough cool water to cover eggs. Bring to a boil; cover, remove saucepan from heat, and let stand 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, drain the water then fill the saucepan with cold water and ice (This is key. It will make removing the shell so much easier!) Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Tap each egg firmly on the counter until cracks form all over the shell. Peel under cold running water. For step-by-step photos, check out my post for CLASSIC DEVILED EGGS.
