Total time
Often, boiled eggs can be quite rubbery. Steaming the eggs until they are hard cooked results in a creamier texture for both the white and yolk.
Serves: 6-8 eggs
  • large saucepan with steamer basket and lid
  • water
  • 6-8 large eggs (or as many as you would like to cook that fit comfortably in a single layer)
  1. Bring 1-2 inches of water to boil over high heat in the saucepan. Place eggs in a single layer in steamer basket and place on pan; cover with lid. Reduce heat to medium and let the eggs steam for 15 minutes. (Note: The bottom of the basket should not touch the water).
  2. Meanwhile, make an ice water bath in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. After 15 minutes, immediately place the hot eggs in the ice water bath to allow to cool. Crack and peel or store in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy.
