Basic method for hard-cooked eggs: Place cold eggs in single layer in a saucepan. Cover with at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water over top of eggs. Cover saucepan with lid and bring water to boil over high heat. Immediately remove pan from heat to stop boiling. With lid on saucepan, let eggs stand in water for 18 minutes (large eggs). Drain water and immediately run cold water over eggs or let them sit in cold water until cooled. Refrigerate hard-cooked eggs immediately and use within one week.
