Steamed Hard Boiled Eggs

Steamed Hard Boiled Eggs

Surprisingly enough, we struggled to get consistent results when making hard boiled eggs. Using this steam method has made this a foolproof recipe.


  • 2-8 eggs depending on steamer basket size


  1. Fill a large pot about a quarter full with water and bring to a slow to rapid boil (205+ degrees).
  2. Add cold eggs to steamer basket, place insert inside of pot and cover.
  3. Steam eggs for 15 minutes, while continuing to keep the heat (medium) on the stovetop.
  4. While eggs are steaming fill a large bowl with ice water, the colder the better.
  5. When 15 minutes are up, gently place eggs one at a time into ice bath.
  6. Let eggs rest at least 15 minutes in ice bath.
  7. The eggs can now be stored for up to 5 days. Peeling under cool running water helps remove the shell easier.
