Cooking Basics: Hard Boiled Eggs

For some unknown reason, I can not remember the steps to make hard boiled eggs. We don't make them too often, which is probably why I can not remember how!
Hard Boiled Eggs are a great protein source and yummy too!

Hard Boiled Eggs

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
stock pot
Place eggs in a pot; pour enough water over the eggs to cover by 1 inch. Add baking soda to the water. This will make it easier to peel.
Cover and turn stove to high; bring to a boil; turn off heat and place pot on a cool burner.
Let the pot sit with the cover on for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, fill a large bowl halfway with cold water; transfer the eggs from the pot to the cold water.

Replace the water with cold water as needed to keep cold until the eggs are completely cooled.
Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours before peeling.
