Eggs are high in protein and a staple food for many people. The world over, people like to eat hard-boiled eggs for breakfast. Even though they are high in cholesterol, they are also good for your health in many other ways. Eating 1-2 eggs daily as part of a balanced diet for adults without any health concerns seems okay.

How to Cook Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs:
Step 1: Cover eggs in a saucepan with water:
Add cold water to a quarter of a saucepan. Place the eggs in the saucepan in a single layer. Add sufficient water to cover the eggs by at least one inch. If there are many eggs in the pan, you should pour more water on top of them. Cover six eggs with at least an inch; cover seven to twelve with two inches.
Step 2: Bring to a rolling boil:
Leave the pan uncovered. Turn the heat up high and let the water boil rapidly.
Step 3: Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit:
After 10–12 minutes, the eggs should be done to your liking. If you like soft-cooked eggs, cook them for fewer minutes. Stick with a time that works for you, given your preferences, egg types, pots, stove, and cooking environment. This method makes overcooking eggs difficult. Covering the eggs for 15–18 minutes won’t overcook them.
Step 4: Strain and cool:
Pour out the eggs carefully, then run cold water over them until they are cool after straining the hot water from the pan. As a result, the eggs won’t cook and will be simpler to peel.
Step 5: Peel or store for later:
Peeling eggs is the simplest under a little running water. The best way to keep hard-boiled eggs is to leave the shells on and put them in a container with a lid in the fridge. Eggs can make smells in the refrigerator, so it’s best to put a lid on them.

Perfect-boiled eggs are chicken eggs that haven’t broken their shells and have been cooked in boiling water. When you cook hard-boiled eggs, both the egg white and the egg yolk harden, but when you cook soft-boiled eggs, the yolk and sometimes the white may still be at least partially liquid and raw.
There are a few other ways to make hard-boiled eggs besides putting them in boiling water. Eggs can also be cooked below boiling, steamed, or coddled. The egg timer got its name because it was often used to track how long eggs took to boil.
