Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Nothing irks me like boiled eggs that don't turn out right. Here's the secret to perfect yellow centers and how to get them to peel easily.

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

6 to 8 eggs

Bring enough water to cover eggs to a boil in pot.
Add cold eggs to boiling water and set timer for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, remove from heat and let stand 11 minutes. Plunge hot eggs in cold ice water. To peel, let refrigerated eggs come to room temperature first. The yolks will be bright yellow.

For egg salad, peel the eggs and mush them in a bowl with a fork. Add mayonaise, salt, and pepper to taste. Some people like to add pickle relish or mustard, too.

For deviled eggs, peel the eggs and slice them in half lengthwise. Pop out the yolks and mush them up with a fork. Mix in some mayonaise, salt, and pepper. Again, some people like to add pickle relish or mustard, too. Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture and arrange on a plate. Garnish with red paprika.
