Here, Betty shows you how to hard boil eggs in three simple steps. 

What you’ll need: 

  • Eggs 
  • 2-quart saucepan
How to: 

1. Place eggs in single layer in 2-quart saucepan. Cover with cold water at least 1 inch above eggs. Cover saucepan and heat to boiling. Immediately remove from heat; let stand covered 15 minutes, then drain. Immediately place eggs in cold water with ice cubes or run cold water over eggs until completely cooled.

2. To peel, gently tap each egg on counter-top until entire shell is finely crackled. Roll gently between hands to loosen shell. How-to-Hard-Boil-Eggs_02
