When you have delicious eggs, like the eggs, eating a hard-cooked (aka hard-boiled) egg can offer a surprising pleasure, whether it’s eaten alone, on toast, tucked in a salad; still warm, cold, or even at room temperature.
The exact time to get an egg to get the way you like it depends in part on your altitude and the temperature at which water boils. I live at 7,000 ft. and I let my eggs steep for 6 minutes for a firm yolk that’s still a bit moist. You might want to try it for a somewhat shorter time at sea level, and even shorter if you want your yolk moister. Once you figure out how you like your eggs and how long it takes, the method will work time and time again.
