12 eggs
salt (optional)

Place eggs in a pot. Cover with water by at least one inch

Turn heat to high and wait until it comes to a full boil. Lower the heat to medium and let simmer for an additional 8 minutes. 

Remove pot from heat and let stand for 10 minutes to cool before draining. 

Fully cool eggs before transferring to the refrigerator for storage. Will be good for up to a week. 



A little bit of salt added to the water when boiling can help eggs peel easier.
