Add 12 Eggs to a large pot and cover with water. Set heat to high and cover pot. Once the water boils, reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 8 minutes. After the 8 minutes are up, turn off the heat and remove the pot from the burner. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove an egg from the pot (use tongs) and crack the egg. Remove the peal and set aside. Do this for the remaining eggs. Note: if an egg does not peal easily, place the cracked egg back in the water for a few minutes. Using eggs 1-2 weeks old is preferred as the eggs will peal much easier.
Once all of the eggs are pealed, wash off each egg and put on a plate. Place the plate in your fridge until cooled. Cooling the eggs make it much easier to cut in half without tearing the white of the egg.
