About this recipe: Try this method of steaming eggs instead of boiling them! You are much less likely to crack the eggs before they are cooked if you use this method. Follow my tips for cooling and peeling the eggs - it never fails for me. It will work for as little as one egg or up to a dozen at a time.


Makes: 12 eggs

  • 12 eggs, at room temperature

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min cooling  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Place a steamer insert into a pot and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to just below the boil. Add eggs to steamer insert and steam for 15 minutes.
  2. Immediately transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water until cool enough to handle. Make a small crack on the large end of each egg and place eggs back into the ice water for about 20 minutes. Peel.
