How to make hard-boiled eggs

The Sudden Cook's way to make perfect hard-boiled eggs are super easy. I would love to know the different methods used by different people. I stuck to this method cause it worked all the time!
1) Remove eggs from fridge at least 10 minutes before.
2) Place in saucepan and fill with cold water. Be sure the water covers the eggs surface
3) Place saucepan over heat (don't cover) and bring it to a boil

4) Once it starts to boil, place the cover over saucepan, turn off heat and leave for 15minutes.
5) About 8 mins in between, remove cover and use a chopstick/spoon to move eggs around. Replace cover and leave for rest of required time.
6) Remove eggs, run over cold water to cool and proceed to peel.

Mashing them eggs makes great egg sandwiches or these egg and bacon puffs

On a totally unrelated note, this blog is sporting a spanking (new) banner created by my very talented blogger friend Red Ruby On Fire. I went to high school with RROF and can attest to the fact that this girl is super creative! Thanks GS! The spoons are a welcome change to the otherwise dreary look the blog was made of in the past. One batch of brownies coming your way when you're down next. Make sure you give me a holler!

You are most welcomed! Hey, can get some good Indian curry recipe off you? I want to try curry crab like the banana leaf restaurant kind...

This is how I made my hard boiled eggs too, but I leave it for only 10 minutes and it's cooked. Love the new banner, it looks professional :)

Though I cool the eggs in water after I boil them, sometimes the peeling is still kinda hard - with the shells still stuck tight to the egg and egg membrane :O

RROF: If I knew how to make crab curry like the banana leaf restaurant kind, you would have seen the recipe here by now - lol! But I am still learning and will def post more Indian food recipes.

Noobcook: Yes the banner does look professionally done! 10 mins huh? Ok thanks for the tip. I am always so afraid of peeling them to early only to discover their not 'hard' enough yet!

Tigerfish: That's what I love about this method - no sticking at all. In face the peeling process is v easy. Maybe you need to remove them from the fridge much earlier?

I use a very similar method but I also add a pinch of salt to the water :) I don't know way ... perhaps I learned that from my mum when I was a child :)
