Boiled Egg

Simple way to enjoy a boiled egg; a quick fix for hunger pangs ....
1. Place egg at room temperature with just enough water to cover egg.
2, Bring water to a boil and simmer for about nine minutes, or longer, depending on how you like your egg cooked.
3. In the meantime, mix some light soya with white pepper in a saucer.
4. When egg is cooked, shell and dip into the sauce.
5. Enjoy whilst egg is warm.

Is it true when you make hard boil eggs you need to add salt in the water and so the shell will not crack when boiled?

TTC, not heard of it before.
Try to cook eggs at room temperature. Eggs directly out from the fridge and immersing in boiling hot water will definitely crack due to sudden change in temperature.
Place eggs in cold water in a single layer, water level above eggs about an inch or two. Bring to a rapid boil.
If you want to centralise the egg yolk, move the pan gently during the cooking process so the egg yolk remains at center. When cooked to your liking, peel at the large end of egg under cold running water to ease the shell.
Good luck :))
