I finally learned how to make hard boiled eggs. Really. I used to boil eggs but had very mixed results - mostly bad - with peeling them so they didn't look butchered. Then someone told me to steam them. I've done so many times. Works great! Eggs are consistently just as pretty as those for sale at the deli. My big recipe contribution to tPF: Put metal steamer basket in saucepan. Add enough water to level just below bottom of steamer. Bring water to mild boil over medium low heat. Add eggs and cook with lid on for 18-20 minutes.
