Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

The American Egg Board recommends the following preparation for Hard Cooked Eggs:
  • Bring eggs and water to a full, rolling boil.
  • Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 14 to 17 minutes.
  • While cooking easily raises the internal temperature to 160°F (killing any Salmonella bacteria), hard-cooked eggs can spoil more quickly than raw eggs.
  • Refrigerate hard-cooked eggs in their shells promptly and use them within 1 week.

And. here's a great article to make sure that your hard-boiled eggs come out perfectly every time:
