Elise wanted a hard boiled egg to take with her lunch tomorrow. I never thought about it before as we don’t often eat hard boiled eggs. I like to think that I can cook, but I didn’t know how long to boil an egg.
So as to reduce the risk of your eggs cracking, put them in the pot of water before boiling the water.
Soft-cooked eggs: 3 to 5 minutes
Medium-cooked eggs: 7 to 8 minutes
Hard-cooked eggs: approximately 15 to 20 minutes
