From Serious Eats: Start with old eggs, cook them hot -- go right from fridge to boiling water, and boil on lowest heat possible -- 6 min for soft boiled and 11 min for hard boiled, chill them rapidly and completely in an ice bath for 15 minutes, crack all over, and peel under running water
Provides two ways of preparing hard-boiled eggs-one way is by not boiling them at all! I can never seem to boil eggs correctly, so I tried the second option of baking them in the oven and they turned out PERFECTLY. Baked at 325 for 30 minutes and just filled my sink with cold tap water and let them soak in there...without the "pinch of salt." Totally not necessary.
