Carefully place eggs in single layer in 4-quart saucepan. Add enough water to cover at least 1 inch above eggs. Cover saucepan.
Cook over medium-high heat 12-15 minutes or until water comes to a boil. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 15 minutes.
Place eggs into ice water 5-7 minutes or until cooled. Peel eggs. Store refrigerated.
- After draining hot water and before adding ice water to eggs in pan, roll eggs around in pan to slightly crack shells. Water will seep under shell, making peeling easier.
- A greenish ring around egg yolk? This is a reaction between sulfur in the egg white and iron in the egg yolk. This happens when eggs have been cooked at too high a temperature for too long a time.
