They were not cooked at all. I turn to Allrecipes whenever I have a cooking question.

I always bring my eggs to a boil, cover, turn off the heat and let set for 10 minutes (extra large eggs). I drain and cool under running cold tap water and they are perfect every time with a beautiful light yellow and creamy yolk. I have never had a bad boiled egg since unless I eat someone else's boiled eggs which are boiled until the yolk is green and hard. Those are awful.
