Easy way to boil and peel eggs:

1. Use a pot that’s large enough to lay one layer of eggs on the bottom. Make sure to gently lay the eggs in the pot to avoid cracks in your eggs.  Fill pot with enough cool water to just cover eggs (about 1 to 1.5 inches high).
2. Turn stove to medium-high heat until the water starts to boil for 5-7 minutes
3. Cover pot with a lid, take it off the heat, and let eggs stand with the lid on for about 12 minutes for large, and 10 minutes for medium sized eggs.
4. Place eggs in a bowl of cool water.
5.Now tap the egg on the counter, roll it with the hand on the counter a couple times, and peel it under running water.
