Boiled (Steamed) Eggs
With their gorgeous, orange yolks and rich flavor, there aren’t many downfalls to our fresh, pasture-raised eggs. However, since the inner membrane clings tightly to the shell of a fresh egg, it’s near-impossible to have anything but ugly results when you try to hard-boil them. When we tested this technique from The Prairie Homestead and discovered it resulted in perfectly boiled eggs, we did a happy dance! Enjoy!



  1. Fill the bottom of the pot with water–the exact amount isn’t important, just make sure you aren’t submerging the eggs. Also make sure that there is enough water to keep the pot from boiling dry.
  2. Place the eggs in the colander or steamer basket, and the colander/basket in the pot. Bring the water to a boil, and place the lid on top.
  3. Allow the eggs to steam for 20-22 minutes. Remove the colander or steamer basket from the pot and rinse the eggs with cold water to halt the cooking process.
