Eggs and hummus, it’s quite tasty! Except I would always make my hard boiled eggs all wrong: egg whites chewy and robbery, and egg yolk dry and sandy. So I looked up methods of making the perfect hard boiled eggs. Turned out there’s a reason why people post these things online… for people like me who are doing it wrong :P
Place eggs in a pot; pour enough water over the eggs to cover, plus an inch over. Add some salt. Cover and turn stove to high. Bring to a full boil, then turn off stove. Let the pot sit with the cover on for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a large bowl halfway with cold water; transfer the eggs from the pot to the cold water. Replace the water with cold water as needed to keep cold until the eggs are completely cooled.

If the eggs crack in the pot, add some vinegar. This will prevent the egg white from seeping through, thus keeping the eggs in their egg shaped form. Some netizens think that vinegar alters the taste of the egg. You should experiment on your own. I don’t care enough about the form so I didn’t add any vinegar to my pot.
