Hard Boiled Egg Directions

1) Activate one burner on your stove and turn it on medium heat.  Since each stove varies, there isn't a universal heat setting that everyone can use.  My stove goes from 1 to 12, with 12 providing the highest amount of heat and 1 providing the lowest.  In my hard boiled egg directions, I put my stove at a 6, which is right in the middle.

2) Fill up a pot about halfway with water, place on the stove and wait for the water to begin boiling.  The size of the pot really depends on how many eggs you plan on boiling.  You also don't want to use too much water, because it might overflow when you add the eggs.

3) Once the water begins to simmer, add the eggs.  I use a large serving spoon to place the eggs in the water.  You don't want to just drop them in, because that could result in the egg shells cracking or even breaking.  Be very careful and gentle when adding the eggs to the high temperature water, otherwise it could be a recipe for disaster.  This is one of the most important steps in my hard boiled egg directions.

4) Leave the eggs boiling in the water for 10 minutes.  You'll want to keep your eye on the eggs to make sure the water doesn't overflow onto the stove.  

5) After the 10 minutes has passed, use your serving spoon to scoop the eggs out of the hot water and place them in a bowl.  Make sure the bowl can handle high temperature foods, because the egg shells will be extremely hot.  

6) Let the eggs cool for about 10-15 minutes and enjoy!  I usually refrigerate mine, because I don't plan on eating them right away after boiling.  There you have it, the 6 easy steps that make up my hard boiled egg directions.
