How to Boil an Egg Perfectly

Boiling the perfect egg is not as easy as it seems. Many people have tried and failed! The egg either comes out too soft and runny or too hard and firm. The following instructions on how to boil and egg give the perfect boiled egg every time.

Boiled Egg Recipe

  1. Place the egg in a small pan of cold water.

  2. Cook the egg until the water comes to a full boil.

  3. Immediately set a timer for 2 ½ minutes.

  4. Remove the egg from the water as soon as the timer goes off because the egg keeps cooking even after you remove it from the stove.

  5. Cut the top off the boiled egg and enjoy.

The time for the boiled eggs remains the same no matter how many eggs you put in the pan. I usually boil 2 for myself. There's nothing better in the morning than two perfectly boiled eggs! Yum…
