I find that brown eggs take much longer to fully cook than white-shelled eggs. I do all of the above for the white eggs, simmering 11 minutes for large. But brown eggs seem to take 15 minutes. Anyone else find this?

I bring them to an 'almost boil', remove them from the heat, give them a gentle stir, cover them with a lid for 10 minutes and then into an ice bath. Perfect every time.

- two eggs in a small fry pan with 2 tbsp of milk
- scramble and cook until the eggs just start to firm up
- add some shredded cheddar and cook until done

I buy "Egglands Best" Hard Boiled eggs. They are perfect every time!

I bring the water to a boil w/ the eggs in the water from the start. As soon as the water starts to boil I cover the pot and turn the heat off. If you have electric, that means taking it off the burner. Wait 15 minutes and they are perfectly cooked.

I place a single layer of eggs in a pan over high heat. Once the eggs begin to simmer, I set the timer for two minutes. The eggs simmer for 2 minutes, then I shut off the heat and cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid. After ten minutes, I drain the eggs from the hot water and cover them with ice-cold water. I find it easier to peel the eggs while they are slightly warm.

I bring the water to a low boil. Boil for 3 min, let them sit in the water for 8 min and pour off the hot water. I then add ice cold water to stop the cooking process. Perfectly cooked and a beautiful yellow yolk with no green edge. Perfect for deviled eggs! I always use week old eggs for easy peeling.
