The Best Way to Hard-Boil Eggs, Chef Chris Miracolo of S3 Shows Us How

As easy as it may seem, hard-boiling an egg requires a bit more finesse than just throwing an egg into boiling water.

Cook them too long: you get a chewy mess. Too short: you're falling into soft-boiled territory. Not delicate enough: the egg will crack.

You get the point.

Well, to help us out with what should seem like the simplest of tasks, we asked Chef Chris Miracolo of S3 to show us the best way to hard-boil an egg.

"You know when you drop eggs into water and they crack?" asks Miracolo, "It's best to do it the other way around."

Step One: Boil a pot or tea kettle of water.

Step Two: Place the eggs on the bottom of an empty saucepan or pot and set on high heat.
