hard boiled egg coming out liquid - June 14th 2015, 04:44 PM

How long do you need to leave it on the fire so it can form a shape? I usually take it off the fire when I see the water boiling. Then I take the pot and run it under cold water and crack it but it is almost raw! And it doesn't taste very good, let me tell you.

Need tips...can't believe I'm going backwards as I used to get it right and now I just don't :|

I don't want to keep it long enough for it to form very hard. I like the yellow soft-ish but still solid enough to hold it.

Re: hard boiled egg coming out liquid - June 14th 2015, 05:23 PM

So this is what I did when I did hard boiled eggs for a salad bar at a restaurant I worked at. I would put the eggs in the pot, fill it with water, and then put the pan on the stove. Once the water started boiling, I would wait 12 minutes. After that I would put the pot, still with the hot water, under cold tap water and leave it running until the water in the pan was cold.

Does that make sense?

That makes tons of sense. That's pretty much what I do except I wait 2 minutes after it boils not 12. So there is the missing puzzle piece
so 12 minutes, got it.
Thank you a bunch :3

YEah, you gotta give the egg a bit of time to get cooked, y'know :P

Oh, you're definitely not letting it cook long enough! Try ten minutes and then give or take if need be

It only takes 12? The rule in my family was 20. I wait for the water to boil, leave it on low heat(they peel easier that way) then leave them for 20 minutes and I've never had a problem. They get slightly overdone sometimes, but definitely not inedible. It might also depend how many you boil at once, I do at least 4 and up to 8 at a time.

I've never waited 20 minutes. I would prefer having them under done than overdone, but that's just becuase of a texture preference I guess.
I usually boil 2-4 eggs at a time because there are 5 of us and 1 is a vegan.

you can buy egg timers that have a guide on them - you put them in the pan with the egg and it like changes colour to guide you it says soft, hard and something else on it and it will change colour from soft to hard as the egg cooks to help like guide you on how cook it is.

The more eggs you put in the pot, the longer it takes to cook. So for 4-8 eggs, 20 minutes is about right but might be a bit too little for more than 5. I would go for 25-30 minutes to be on the safe side.

I would not boil eggs for 30 minutes. When I did the salad bar I boiled approximately 20 at a time and did it for 12 minutes . Start with 10 and work your way up

I'm so glad you figured it out! I'm good with other eggs, but hardboiled eggs are not my forte as I do not like them. It sounds like took them off before they could even be soft boiled eggs, which I actually do like...I like runny yolks. Back on topic, since your issue has been resolved, I'm going to close this thread, but feel free to ask any other food questions and the TeenHelp foodies will help! If you want this reopened, let me know.
