The Perfect Boiled Egg

Remember my deviled egg tray from Andrew’s first birthday party that my brother dove into before I took my picture?


Yep, there it is!

Deviled eggs are sooooo easy to make, and they’re a perfect snack or party food.  I’ll tell you how to boil the perfect egg in this post.  It’s so easy!

The Perfect Boiled Egg

*Place eggs in a pot and cover them with cold water.

*On the stove, bring water to a boil over high heat, uncovered.

*As soon as the water starts to boil (a rolling boil, not just a few bubbles here and there), turn off the burner and cover the pot with a lid.

*Let the pot sit, covered, burner off, for exactly 11 minutes.

*After 11 minutes, drain water and place eggs in a cold water bath until cooled (this stops them from cooking).  You may opt to place eggs in a colander and run cold water over them until cooled, either way is fine.

That’s the perfect boiled egg!  Note:  A perfect boiled egg means the yolk is cooked through but does not have any gray coloring between the yolk and the white of the egg.  If you see gray, you have overcooked the egg.

To make deviled eggs, peel the cooled boiled egg, cut egg in half, scoop out the yolk into a bowl and add mayo, mustard, salt and pepper to the yolk.  Mix those ingredients until your desired taste and spoon filling back into egg.  I sprinkle mine with a little paprika.  Voila!  Enjoy!
