How to: Boil the perfect egg

image

My mornings always seems so frantic when I come through the kitchen so I usually just grab a granola bar or banana, throw it in my purse and eat it while I’m driving or at least try to. No matter what, mornings just always seem so rushed to me and I am always trying to get out of the door! I also love hard-boiled eggs for breakfast and I finally came across a way to make them perfect. Hard-boiled eggs are something that can seem to be really simple and easy to make but they aren’t. I always tend to over cook my eggs leaving the yolk too dry to eat. If you have a little more time in the mornings, try a poached egg instead. Boil your eggs at night to make the perfect grab and go nutritious breakfast in the mornings! Especially since breakfast is the most important meal of the day! 🙂

Boiling eggs literally seems like the easiest thing in the world but its perfecting the yolk that makes all the difference. All you do is bring a medium sauce pan with water to a boil. Once boiled, gently place eggs in water and make sure the water covers them completely! Now…this is totally up to you depending on how you want your eggs.

For soft-boiled, boil eggs for 6 minutes
For medium-boiled, boil eggs for 9 minutes
For hard-boiled, boil eggs for 12 minutes
