The Culinistas 7-Minute Egg

Two hard-boiled eggs sliced in half sprinkled with spices and olive oil.

by The Culinistas

We recommend making half a dozen hard-boiled eggs (and peeling them) to have on hand in a real pinch. Seven minutes gets the yolk to bright yellow with a sticky-but-not-runny consistency.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Serves 3 to 6


6 large organic, cage-free eggs
Water, for boiling


1. Place eggs in a pot with room temp water filled one inch.

2. Bring water to a boil and then cover the pot while still boiling. Let boil for 7 mins.

3. Strain the water and transfer the eggs to an ice bath or run under cold water for one minute.

4. Once the eggs are completely cooled, peel and eat.
