Even though I'm embarrassed, I'm going to review my epic fail with my eggs. My way of making hard boiled eggs is similar but I've always needed a 'tester egg' so I thought I would try this recipe (using 3 eggs because that is all I needed) and I followed it to a T. Came time to peel and cut my eggs. Pull an egg out of the water, spin it on the counter (see a hard boiled egg will spin beautifully while a raw egg just wobbles around..hmmm, my egg isn't spinning like it should...hundreds of people can't be wrong so I'll go with it) peel, and cut. Imagine my surprise when it was only soft boiled. Let's just pop these other two in a bowl of water and finish them off in the microwave...yes, I've been alive 42 years and NO ONE has ever told me that I couldn't/shouldn't do that...Kaboom and my microwave door blows open and I have hard boiled eggs EVERYWHERE! Here is what worked for me: 1) Bring eggs to boil and turn heat to the lowest setting 2) Set timer for 18 minutes 3) When timer goes off, take an egg out of water and see if it spins on the counter top. If it spins it's done, if it wobbles a bit put back in water for a few more minutes and re-spin to check 4) Run cool water over eggs, while in pan. 5) You don't have to cool for hours. I peeled mine after 2 minutes. Just make sure you peel under a trickle of cold running water.
