From Cook's Country
An all-too-common problem with hard-cooked egg recipes is that they produce a greenish colored yolk and a sulfurous odor. What causes the problem and how do we make perfect hard cooked eggs every time? We wanted a recipe that answered both these questions. One thing our testing told us: Don’t boil the eggs. After countless tests, we found that we got the best results from our Hard-Cooked Eggs recipe when we covered the eggs with an inch of water, brought it to a boil, covered the pan, and removed it from the heat. After 10 minutes, we drained the eggs and cooled them in ice water. The gentle heat perfectly cooked the eggs—not a chance of the green tinge or unpleasant smell.

To center the yolks, turn the carton of eggs on its side in the refrigerator the day before you plan to cook the eggs.
