Hey...um...so, I was hungry, needed protein, seeing as all I've eaten today so far are fruit loops, so I put three eggs in a pot of water to hard boil them...

How long are they supposed to be in there???

If the water is boiling, three eggs are the same as one egg. I like my boiled eggs to boil about four minutes.

Yep, don't like em too hard or runny. (Um, that's 4 minutes for a medium egg)

Crap...that's why the eggs weren't so good. I didn't get a response in time, so I boiled the crap out of them thinking I would be safe...went for about 10 minutes, but I wasn't crazy about them. Next time, I'm doing it for 4 minutes.

My wife and kids like 10 min eggs. I don't like boiled eggs in any form, so I can't help you.

A soft boiled egg is about 3 minutes and a hard boiled egg is 10 minutes.

I'll bet the eggs are cooked well by now

Now reduce heat and let simmer for 45 minutes.

Did they have some extra chew to them or what?

Then take them out, and put them in blender, before peeling, and add butter.

Talloola, I'd nuke them first. 10 minutes on high, each side.

Oh yeah, I always forget that 'step', thanks.
