Making a perfectly cooked hard boiled egg, a key ingredient here, is really easy. Put eggs in a small pot and cover with cold water. Place over high heat. Remove pot from heat just before it comes to a boil—you'll see little bubbles begin to float to the top. Cover pot with a lid, and let stand for 10 minutes. Place eggs in a bowl of ice cold water to stop cooking process, then peel and eat, or store in fridge for up to two days.
