The 7-Minute Egg

The 7-Minute Egg

Breakfast of champions! The 7-minute egg

Fool-proof hard-boiled eggs are ready in 7-minutes!  Here’s what you’ll need:  

  1. Raw eggs (farm-fresh if you’ve got em’!)
  2. Sauce pan with lid
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. Ice
  5. Water
  6. Timer




  1. Fill sauce pan with water to about half way.  Place eggs in water, they should be submerged.  Add 1 teaspoon of salt.
  2. Place pot on stove, set water to high and cover.  Once pot is boiling, turn off heat but leave eggs on the hot burner.
  3. Set timer for 7 minutes.  Put ice-cubes in a bowl and fill with water.
  4. After 7 minutes of cooking, transfer eggs to ice-bath.
  5. Once cool, place in an egg carton for up to a week.  I use a Sharpie to mark my cooked eggs so there’s no confusion.
  6. Enjoy with your favorite condiment.  Dijon mustard is my person fav!
