We always have a lot of eggs in my house, so every once in a while I like to hard boil some and save them for lunch or make some egg salad. In this post, I will simply show you the easiest way to hard boil eggs, and how to make a delicious egg salad afterwards.

How To Hard Boil Eggs:
1. Place your eggs at the bottom of a pot in a single layer.
2. Fill the pot (over the eggs) with enough water to cover the eggs by 1 inch.

3. Place pot over medium-high heat, and let sit until water boils.

4. Once water boils, immediately turn off the heat and place a cover over your pot.

5. Let sit with heat off and covered for 15 minutes. Do not take the cover off before the 15 minutes is up because that will allow the heat to escape.
6. After 15 minutes, transfer eggs to an ice bath to quickly cool them after cooking. (Add ice to cold water in a separate bowl).
