  2. Once the water is boiling, take it off the burner and gently drop in the eggs.
  3. Leave the eggs in the water for five minutes and serve.

Hard-Cooked Eggs

Cooking eggs in this way will let you serve them hot or cold:

  1. First, bring some water to a boil. When the water is boiling, gently drop in the eggs.
