- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- Paprika and Parsley for garnish
- Get your eggs (4 large eggs) ready, making sure they are at room temperature. Put them in a pot or saucepan. Add enough water to cover the eggs completely. Add salt (1 tsp) (to prevent the eggs from cracking when boiling as well as to make the peeling easier) then cover the pot.
- Bring the eggs to a full boil the reduce the heat on your stove to the lowest mark, allowing the eggs to gently simmer for exactly 7 minutes. Pour out the hot water then pour cold water into the pot to stop the eggs from cooking any further. When the eggs are completely cooled, peel, serve and enjoy.
