    The 45 BEST Egg Recipes

    Yield: 6 servings
    Prep Time: 5 minutes
    Cook Time: 10 minutes
    Total Time: 15 minutes

    This great collection of Egg Recipes will give you a new appreciation for those budget friendly spheres! For a quick start, here's a simple guide to boiling eggs.


    • 6 eggs


    1. Fill pot with enough water to fully submerge eggs. Bring to a boil over high heat.
    2. When the water comes to rolling boil, gently place the eggs with a spoon or strainer, one at a time. Lower heat to simmer.
    3. Boil according to your preference of boiled eggs:
      6 minutes for a little runny, jammy soft boiled eggs.
      7 minutes for firmer soft boiled eggs.
      9-10 minutes for hard boiled eggs.
    4. Transfer them immediately into a bucket of ice water to cool off and stop the cooking process.
    5. Cool them completely (at least 15 minutes in an ice bath) before peeling.


    1. Use room temperature eggs. Take the eggs out of your refrigerator 30 minutes before boiling them. This prevents the shell from cracking, which is often caused by a rapid change of temperature.
    2. A tip for peeling the eggs easily and seamlessly once cooked? Add in salt and vinegar to your boiling water.
    3. To peel the eggs without any scratches or cracks, gently tap the entire surface of the eggs on the counter or table then gently peel off.
