The Best Recipe You Thought You Knew, But You Don't!

Tomislav begged me to share this with you all because it literally has changed our lives in the kitchen. It seems so basic and simple but most people go the wrong way about it. Here is how you can make PERFECT hard boiled eggs, every single time.

You want them perfect, not rubbery, delicious and gorgeously yellow? Of course you do! Follow these simple instructions and I SWEAR you will be eating hard boiled eggs all the time! Here's what you need to do:

Step 1: Put the eggs in a pot and fill with cold water just an inch above the eggs.
Step 2: Bring to a boil.
Step 3: After it's at a rolling boil, TURN OFF THE HEAT and set the timer for 17 min!
Step 4: Leave the eggs

After 17 minutes are up, drain the water and either put the eggs in an ice bath to stop cooking or just pour cold water over the eggs and you will literally have the best eggs ever! They are so perfect for breakfast, or slice them up for sandwiches, or chop them for salads! Amazingly perfect eggs, every single time!

My egg wasn't sliced the best way, but you can see I made a fantastic Euro-style open faced sandwich with cheese, cold cuts, cucumbers, and my amazing hard boiled eggs! Look at how orange the yolks are - doesn't get better than that!


  1. Send it to me to eat for lunch at work? :)

    1. ok! boom! Did you get it? ;)

  2. Hey! While they are sitting for 17 minutes, do you cover it?? :)

    1. Great question! I have done it both ways and literally see no big difference but usually I just leave it uncovered. Just don't forget to set a timer - you don't want overcooked, rubbery eggs if you forget to check the clock ;) Seriously, try this way next time you make eggs. Perfect every single time!

  3. thought I knew pretty much about cooking, but you just showed me how to cook an egg (properly).
    do they peel of easily after cooling them ?
    you might try to cook "scotch eggs" now you know this.
    have fun, life could'nt be better, nedcro (the dutch guy from svinisce)

    1. They do! It's even easier if the eggs are on the older side. If they're super new, it's more difficult but the eggs will be cooked PERFECTLY. Try it out and enjoy!! Nice to hear from you, fellow Cro expat ;)
