Foolproof Hard-Cooked Eggs
Although the term "hard-boiled" is more commonly known, "hard-cooked" is more accurate because the eggs should not be cooked at a boil.
- 4 large eggs
Place eggs in a deep saucepan; cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 14 minutes. Transfer to an iced water bath; let cool completely.
