Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

It's almost Easter and nothing is more unappetizing than over cooked hard boiled eggs or undercooked hard boiled eggs.  You know what I'm talking about, that greenish, gray tinted egg yolk in an overcooked egg or the dark, wet looking yolk in an undercooked egg.  YUCK!  Why not trying cooking them the proper way?

Add just enough water to cover your eggs and place on the burner of your stove on high heat.
When the water is boiling, turn off the heat on the stove.
Cover the pan and let sit on the burner.

Wait 15 minutes.
Place the  pan in sink and turn on the cold water, fill the pan with cold water until the water in the pan feels cold to the touch.

Let the eggs sit in the cold water for 5-10 minutes.  Remove the eggs.
You will get a perfect, dry, fluffy yolk every time. 

Now you have the perfect hard boiled eggs for eating or for your recipes.
