Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:25 minutes
12 large eggs, chilled
Bring about 3 inches of water to a boil in a large pot. Once boiling, pull the eggs from the refrigerator. Using a slotted spoon or fitted strainer basket, carefully place or submerge the eggs in the boiling water. Boil the eggs for exactly 10 minutes.
While the eggs are boiling, prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with at least 5 cups of ice cubes. Add enough water to cover the ice cubes.
Use a slotted spoon (or the strainer basket) to pull the eggs from the boiling water. Immediately place them in the ice bath, making sure that each egg is submerged. Let them sit in the bath for at least 15 minutes.
Once completely chilled, either peel the eggs and enjoy right away or transfer to the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
