how to boil an egg (2 ways)

>> Wednesday, April 28, 2010

According to the experts at The Incredible Edible Egg, it is fairly simple to hard-cook an egg. Here is the recommended way to cook the eggs:

Step 1

PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. HEAT over high heat just to boiling.

Step 2

REMOVE from burner. COVER pan. LET EGGS STAND in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra large).

Step 3

DRAIN immediately and serve warm. OR, cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then REFRIGERATE.
*************

And now for my interpretation...



Step 1

PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. PLACE on burner over high heat.
Step 2
WALK AWAY and enjoy a large bowl of cereal.
Step 3
GO BACK INTO KITCHEN 1 HOUR LATER, after daughter asks, "What is that popping sound in the kitchen?"
Step 4
DISCARD EGGS and start over using PREVIOUS METHOD!




DISCLAIMER: This is a product of my 36+ weeks pregnancy brain. I usually make decent hard-cooked eggs.
