This is just about the easiest egg recipe you’ll ever make, but I do have a couple of tips to help you make it the best it can be. I also have some variations that you can try, too.
- Peel the eggs as soon as they’re cool enough to handle. Warm eggs peel far more easily than cold eggs.
- Use a sharp knife when slicing your eggs so they cut easily without getting smashed.
- For the easiest filling, use a piping bag.

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg
Hard boiled eggs are simultaneously one of the easiest and hardest things to make. Shells that crack in the water, shells that don’t come away from the egg, under or overcooked eggs – they’re all an issue. However, I have the best way to make them right here.
- Place eggs in a medium pot and cover with cold water, submerging the eggs by an inch.
- Bring the water to a rolling boil, then cover the pot and turn the heat off.
- Let the eggs cook with the lid on for 12 minutes to get hard boiled perfection.
