Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs. Plan on 12 minutes for large eggs and 15 minutes for extra large eggs. Once you’ve mastered cooking hard boiled eggs, give our Scotch Eggs recipe a try!
Put eggs in a pan big enough to hold them in one layer. Cover with cold water by 1 inch. Turn burner to high heat and allow water to just start boiling. Immediately remove from heat and cover the pan. Keep pan covered for 12 minutes for large eggs or 15 minutes for extra large eggs. Remove eggs, and if not using right away, run under cold water to cool and then store in the refrigerator.
