Notice nancyo says to put the eggs in with the water (she sometimes uses hot)

and bring the water (and eggs) to a boil. So, it's not like putting the cold eggs into boiling water.

And I always add about a teaspoon of vinegar, just so if the eggs do crack, they won't run all over the place.

My former method was to bring them to a boil, boil 5 minutes, turn off the heat, cover and let sit for 15 minutes. That was okay, but I see no reason to use the flame for 5 extra minutes cooking them, when just bringing them to a boil will do. And that additional heat I used to do brings them dangerously close to the dreaded grey/green ring.

Hard-cooked eggs or Boiled eggs?
I call them hard-boiled eggs, and have not used the term hard-cooked eggs. All boiled eggs
I also call them hard-boiled eggs, and there are soft-boiled also, although I've never had one. *NM*

Re: Are the eggs room temp or right out of fridge?
Thanks! But I'd be afraid they'd crack going into boiling water. *NM*
