How long do you boil eggs?
Place eggs in a medium pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then cover the pot and turn the heat off. Let the eggs cook, covered, for 9 to 12 minutes, depending on your desired done-ness (see photo).
What setting do you put the stove on for eggs?
Make sure your stove is set to medium-low heat
High heat will burn your eggs, low heat won’t cook them fast enough for the creamy, curd-like texture you’re aiming for.
How do you know when your eggs are done when you boil them?
If you’re wondering how to tell an egg is hard boiled, set it on the counter and give a quick spin. Once it’s moving, tap your finger on it to stop the spinning. Eggs that are cooked will spin easily and rapidly and stop quickly.
How do you boil eggs without the shell sticking?
To prevent any of the egg from oozing out of the shell, add about 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar to the water before heating to boil. When I do this, the cracked egg cooks perfectly just like all the others in the pot.
