    Easy 12-Minute Method for Hard-Boiled Eggs: Place eggs in a saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Heat over high heat just to boiling. Remove from the burner. Cover pan. Let eggs stand in hot water for about 12 minutes for large eggs (9 minutes for medium eggs; 15 minutes for extra large eggs). Drain. Shock the eggs in a bowl of ice water to cool them immediately. Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling.


This simple egg salad made with avocado, tomato, red onion, cilantro, and other tasty ingredients can be served as a starter, entree, sandwich filling or in hollowed-out tomatoes. It is the perfect avocado egg salad recipe for summer!

For neat even slices in one stroke, use an egg slicer.

Chopping tips: Slice egg in egg slicer, carefully position egg crosswise in slicer tray and slice again. Don’t have a slicer? A sharp-bladed pastry blender will chop eggs quickly too.
