 Hard-Boiling Eggs Perfectly

    1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with 1 inch of cold water.
    2. Cook over high heat until just boiling.
    3. Remove from burner and cover.
    4. Let eggs sit in saucepan for 12 minutes (large eggs) – 15 for extra large, 7 for medium.
    5. Drain eggs and run cold water over them (while still in the pan) to cool them down.
    6. Refrigerate them (or make egg salad!)
