  • If you haven't already, cook your eggs by placing eggs in a large saucepan and covering with water by at least 1 inch. Bring water to a rolling boil over high heat. Let the water rapidly boil for 30 seconds, cover and remove from heat. Let sit for 10-12 minutes.

  • Once eggs have sat for the allotted time, drain water or use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the hot water. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water or place the eggs in a colander and run cold water over them. Either of these methods will stop the cooking process and cool the eggs.
