I sent in a recipe for hard boiled eggs and it was this. Place eggs in a pan of water and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, remove from heat,cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Rinse in cold water. This saves energy and watching the stove. They are as good as any recipe. I have used this for over 20 years. Try it! You'll like it. If you run a few minutes over the twenty don't worry it is still the same results.
