Eggs can break when boiled because they bump into each other from the boiling motion.

Fortunately, there’s a straightforward trick to ensure eggs stay whole while cooking on the stove!

You don’t have to put the eggs directly in the boiling water. Instead, place them in a steamer basket above the simmering water.

This method prevents them from banging into each other and avoids the green ring around the yolks.

Follow these five steps for perfect hard-boiled eggs:

  1. Arrange eggs in the basket, leaving space for steam.
  2. Position the basket over gently boiling water, cover, and cook for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Use tongs to transfer eggs to ice water to cool.
  4. Pat dry before peeling.
  5. Enjoy your perfectly cooked eggs for snacking or in your favorite recipes!
