The Perfect Medium Boiled Egg

The Perfect Medium Boiled Egg

I feel like in life there are a handful of things you need to learn how to do… to just basically say you did your part in living your best life… or at minimum just lived:

  1. Ride a Bike

  2. Read a Book

  3. Boil an Egg

I’ll be honest, the last one had me stumped me for quite some years up until recently. I have read and tried countless ways to get the best boiled egg… medium as I like to call it. You know the kind… ever so slightly soft in the center, but hard enough to make creamy deviled eggs out of… that’s “medium” right there :) That was easy to peel and didn’t have the questionable grey ring around it.

Well, I figured it out… and I can officially say I’ve accomplished all of life’s basics and I’m tapping out for the day!


  1. Fill a pot with enough warm water to cover an egg by 1 inch. Do not place the eggs in the water yet, just test the water level by using an egg to make sure there is enough water to cover it by 1 inch, then remove the egg.

  2. Bring the pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat.

  3. Place eggs in boiling water and set timer for 12 minutes. Keep on medium-high heat, it will take a couple minutes for the water to boil again.

  4. Add a pinch of salt to the water.

  5. Turn off heat once timer has ended, remove eggs, and place them in an ice bath.

  6. Peel eggs under cool running water.

  7. Enjoy!
