Steamed hard boiled eggs are easy to make and easy to peel! This tried and true method will become your go-to.


  • 6 to 8 eggs


  1. Place a few inches of water in a pot (to a level just below the steamer basket). Bring it to a boil.
  2. Add the steamer basket with eggs, and top with a lid. Steam for 13 minutes for large eggs that are in a single layer. Add 2 to 3 minutes longer if the eggs are crowded or stacked in a steamer (depending on the number of eggs and size of your steamer*).
  3. Remove the eggs and place them in an ice bath until cool (about 10 minutes). Peel and enjoy. Store unpeeled eggs refrigerated for up to 1 week.


*We have a large steaming basket that came with our stock pot: it fits 8 to 10 eggs comfortably. If you have a smaller steamer basket that’s collapsible, it fits 6 eggs in a single layer.
