How to Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with 1 inch of water. Bring just to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, immediately pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

Refrigerate hard-boiled eggs for up to 1 week.
