Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe

Eggs symbolize fertility and new life. In many cultures boiled eggs are made after the birth of a child to give to family and friends. They are an excellent source of protein so they “do the body good” as well.

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Cooling: 45 minutes | Servings:  6



  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Hard boiled eggs are easier to peel if they are a few days old.  Purchase your eggs 5 days before boiling.

  1. Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan.  Fill saucepan with cold water, with 1 inch of water above level of eggs.
  2. Add teaspoon of salt.
  3. Cover saucepan.  Bring water to boiling over high heat.
  4. Turn off stove and keep saucepan on burner.  Do not remove lid.  Let set for 12 minutes.
