Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

Eggs are more than just your average, protein-packed breakfast food. Become an eggs-pert and learn to cook eggs a dozen different ways.

1. Hard-Boiled

Hard-boiled eggs keep for about a week in the refrigerator if made properly. Set eggs in a saucepan, cover with water 1 inch above the eggs, and bring the water to a boil on high heat. Remove the pan from the heat, set aside for about 10 minutes, and then immediately cool the eggs in ice water or in the refrigerator.

2. Soft-Boiled

Soft-boiled eggs have a hard egg white but a soft yolk. Cut the hard-boiling time in half to get soft-boiled eggs.

3. Hard Scrambled

Believe it or not, there is more than one way to scramble eggs. Hard scrambled eggs are cooked all the way through even though they may end up a bit dry.

4. Soft Scrambled

Cook soft scrambled eggs for less time than hard scrambled to retain more moisture. Eggs cook quickly, so add a little milk to keep the whisked mixture from drying out before you finish cooking.
