  1. Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover them with cool water. Make sure they are completely submerged. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.

  2. Once the water boils, cover the sauce pan and remove it from the heat. Let the eggs sit 12 minutes. Set a timer.

  3. Gently transfer the eggs to a large bowl of ice water to cool.This stops the cooking process. Let them sit for a couple minutes.

  4. Peel the eggs under cold running water. This helps to get underneath the membrane and makes it easier to peel the eggs.
