The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

A few tips for perfect hard boiled eggs?  The night before you boil your eggs, turn the whole egg carton on its side. This will help position the yolks directly into the center of the egg. This works great if you are using the eggs in a deviled egg recipe

To boil your eggs: Place eggs in large saucepan, fill with water, fully covering the eggs. Sprinkle with a little baking soda, about 1/2 tbsp. (this helps keep the shells from sticking to the egg when you peel them, so they still look pretty!) Set over high heat until the water is boiling. Cover pot, remove from heat. Set timer for 14 minutes. When they are done, remove with a slotted spoon and place into a large bowl of ice water to keep the eggs from cooking further. Once cooled, peel. Hard boiled eggs will keep good in your fridge, with shell-on for 1 week.
