Breakfast is important, but hard to make time for, so every Sunday night I do breakfast “prep”, which usually includes boiled eggs, overnight oats, and some form of breakfast casserole. It helps us get our days off on the right start nutritionally, without making us run late! I’ll admit it – I used to hate hard boiled eggs. The chalky texture, the gray ring around the yolk, the smell… yuck! Turns out, that was the wrong way to boil eggs! Well, unless you are trying to boil them to death… then that would be the correct method. So here it is, just in time for Easter, the perfect (in my opinion) way to boil eggs!
Perfect Boiled Eggs
Use as many eggs as desired. I usually do 6-8 for weekly meal prep.
- Eggs – as many as you need
- Water – enough to cover all your eggs
- A bowl of iced water
- In a large pot, bring water to a gentle boil
- Just as it starts bubbling, gently add your eggs
- Cover and let the eggs boil for 8 minutes
- After 8 minutes, immediately submerge your eggs in the iced water to prevent them cooking further
- Store eggs in fridge until ready to use
There you have it; a simple way to make tasty eggs with jammy yolks, not that chalky gray stuff. These are easy to peel, too! Eat them with a sprinkling of salt and pepper – perfect for breakfast meal prep or a quick snack on-the-go.

You can eat your most important meal of the day and still get out the door on time! Drink some coffee, get a nutritious breakfast, slay that morning carpool or meeting…and enjoy your pinch of crazy!
