I am not about to give you a recipe, more of a suggestion of how to cook something I am sure you have cooked many times already.  In the past I always boiled eggs for 10 minutes.  I didn't know there was another, better way to cook them until I read of this method.  It gives you a perfectly boiled egg with none of the dry chalkiness and grey edged nastiness of an over boiled egg.  

I love this method and with salad season upon us I thought it only right to share it on my blog as there is something quite special about quartered boiled eggs on a salad- yum!


Put the eggs into a saucepan of water, over medium heat. Bring to boil, and cook for 3 minutes, then turn off the heat and let the eggs sit in the pan for 10 minutes.

Transfer the eggs to a bowl of cold water and let cool. Peel the eggs once they feel cool to the touch.

If you like your boiled eggs silky and still wobbly in the middle please feel free to boil for only 1 minute at the start with 10 minutes in the hot water off the heat.  Please note that if cooking for young, elderly or pregnant ladies it is recommended that you cook eggs thoroughly so do not use this 1 minute method.
