3-Minute Hard Boiled Eggs in a Frying Pan

Pour 2 cm of water into a frying pan. Allow it to boil for 3 minutes. You'll be able to smoothly peel the shell.


Enough to cover half of the bottom of a frying pan


1. Add 2 cm of water to a frying pan.
2. Once the water comes to a boil, take chilled eggs out of the fridge, and place them in the frying pan without cracking them. Rolling them around while placing them in is best.
3. Cover with a lid, and in order to prevent the eggs from resting on one side, tilt the frying pan and roll them around without cracking them. Once you've rolled them around 2 or 3 times, start timing 3 minutes. Please use a timer. Turn off the heat, and leave them as is for 10 minutes. Then move the eggs to a bath of cold water. Once they've cooled down, you're done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I read in some book and heard on television that if you boil cold eggs, they'll be easier to peel. I tried it out and it turned out well, so I always do this.
The water comes to a boil quickly when using a frying pan, and it might also save fuel? lol
