Loaded with proteins, vitamins, and minerals, eggs are a healthy and affordable choice when it comes to breakfast—or any meal, for that matter! Don't fall into a rut with your standard scramble: Here's how to make soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, deviled eggs, and more. Time to get crackin'.
How to hard-boil eggs
To hard-boil eggs, place as many eggs as you'd like in a pot with cold water (the water should entirely cover all the eggs). Bring to a boil and cover the pot. Turn off stove, remove the pot from the stove and let sit, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the eggs and place them in a bowl of ice water until eggs are completely cooled.
Store hard-boiled eggs in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week; crack and peel before enjoying.
