Directions:
Despite its name, a boiled egg shouldn't be boiled (which will yield rubbery results) but rather immediately removed from the heat once the cooking water comes to a boil.

Place eggs in a saucepan large enough to accommodate them in a single layer. Fill pan with cold water, covering eggs by 1 inch. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn off heat. Cover and let stand 90 seconds to 2 minutes for soft-boiled, 1 minute 45 seconds to 2 minutes for medium-boiled and 11-12 minutes for hard boiled.

Once the hard-boiled eggs are cooked, transfer them to a bowl of ice water (this prevents discoloration). Let stand 2 minutes. Then crack by gently pressing eggs against a hard surface. Peel under cold running water.
