Hungry for More: Making a perfect hard-cooked egg

Most cooks have tried to make hard-boiled eggs. Whether it comes out over-cooked or under-done, getting the egg just perfect isn’t easy.

Mezzaluna’s head chef Eric Watson and host Jim Manney show us the fool-proof way to make a hard-cooked (not boiled) egg in this week’s episode of “Hungry for More”

The trick to a perfectly hard-boiled egg is that you don’t technically boil it through the end.

Instead, start with boiling water. As you add the eggs, bring the water down to a simmer.

Just nine minutes in the simmering water will hard cook your egg all the way through.

To make sure your eggs come out perfectly, take them directly from the hot water and add them to an ice bath. After a bit of a cool-down they should be easy to peel and ready to use in a salad, sandwich or something “egg-straordinary.”
