Remember when we were talking about those easy recipes we should have known how to do by now, but might not? Well, we're going way back to basics today as we refresh how to boil the perfect egg.

What You'll Need

  • Pot and lid

  • Put the eggs at the bottom of the pot and make sure they're not overlapping one another.

  • Bring the water to a rolling boil.
  • Remove from heat and let them stand for 12 minutes.
  • After 12 minutes, turn on the tap and pour cold water over them immediately.

There you go! Now you know how to boil the perfect egg and you can also use them as beautiful decorations for Easter.
