I don’t eat eggs. For that reason I always have to look up how to properly cook eggs for Easter. Here’s how:
1. Place eggs in a heavy saucepan in a single layer and add enough cold water to cover the eggs by an inch.
2. Bring to a boil over high heat.
3. Lower to just below a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
4. Immediately remove each egg with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl filled with ice water. (This helps to make sure the yolks won’t get the unattractive green ring.)
