How to Make this Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs recipe

STEP FOUR: Remove eggs and place immediately into ice water for 2 to 3 minutes.
PRO TIP: The hard-boiled eggs peel easiest when peeled under cold water (right in the ice bath works great) after just a few minutes in the ice bath.
STEP FIVE: Peel and serve!
