With the current interest in smoking HB eggs, thought I'd share the 12 minute method Mama taught me for any of you who may dread prepping HB eggs. I know I used to until a couple of years ago when I learned this way.
The yolks are never grey and peeling is a breeze. Little to no wasted egg using this method:
Place eggs in a pot in enough COLD water to completely cover.
Turn burner on high. When pot begins to boil, remove from heat and cover for 12 minutes.
When the 12 minutes are up, run eggs under cold tap water until eggs are completely cool. Peel immediately.
