I was out of hard boiled eggs, so I made some more last night. I eat one every morning for breakfast. And sometimes at night for a snack.
The internet says to put eggs in cold water, then bring to a boil, then take off the heat and let sit for twelve minutes. I used to do it by the book every time, but one time I ended up with soft boiled eggs. Gross.
So now I over cook my eggs. I set them to boil, then let it boil a while, then turn off the stove and let them sit in the hot water until I remember that I left them there. Usually the water is cool by then. Now they are NEVER under cooked.
And to be honest, I don’t see what’s wrong with overcooked eggs. They taste and look fine to me. Is it supposed to be a texture thing or something? I don’t get it.
