How to Boil an Egg Perfectly, by Sam Kiragu

How do you boil your eggs? Today, my friend Sam Kiragu who really loves cooking shares with us how he prepares his boiled eggs -which by the way, he insists are healthier than fried eggs :).

Here’s how:

1.  Place the eggs in a sufuria with cold water. Start the boil and cover.
2. Meanwhile, add some salt to prevent the shell from breaking while boiling. 

Tip: Boil an egg for around 15 minutes for it to be well done.

3. Drain the hot water after 15 minutes and cool the eggs with cold water. This makes it easier to remove the shell.

There goes Sam’s simple boiled egg recipe. Did you learn anything new? I did! I had no idea that you can add some salt to the boiling water to prevent the shell from breaking. Did you know that? Infact, me when I boil an egg and I see the shells beginning to crack that’s when I assume they are ready :). Thank you Sam!

So how do you boil your egg?
