Easter is just around the corner and there’s one essential item on everyone’s Easter dinner menu: hard-boiled eggs. Hard-boiled eggs are incredibly easy to make but there are a few key elements you should be aware of before you begin boiling.

Two of the most common questions, when boiling eggs are “How long, do I boil them for” and “How long do they stay good for.” Luckily, we have the answer to both questions right here.

 

1. Hard Boiled Eggs Time

First of all, the length of time you boil your eggs for will depend on how exactly you want your eggs. If you like the yolk really dry, leave them in the pot for a few extra minutes, if you like the yolk runny, take them out a few minutes early. If you like them just right (like I do) you’ll want to bring the pot of water with the eggs in it to a boil, take the pot off the element (and place it on a cool element). Put a lid on the pot and leave it for about 13 minutes. Remove the eggs after 13 minutes and put them in a bowl in the fridge.

How Long do Hard Boiled Eggs Keep?

It’s hard to tell whether a hard-boiled egg has gone bad. Best practice is to eat your eggs within one week of boiling – as long as you’ve kept them in the fridge. If you’ve had them out all day (to serve for Easter day, for example), you should probably throw them out at the end of the day.
