Hard boil the eggs

Place the eggs in a saucepan, cover completely with cold water and set to boil on high heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium and let it simmer for 8 minutes. Remove the eggs and plunge them in ice water for 5 minutes. This way the eggs are perfectly cooked and are easy to peel. Peel and slice them into halves lengthwise. Remove the yolks carefully with a small spoon and mash.
