Until meeting Brian, I didn't think there was a 'right way' to make hard boiled eggs.. however his culinary school would disagree!
In a saucepan, place 4 eggs and fill it with water.
Turn to high heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer.
After 5 minutes, turn off heat and leave the eggs in the pan until it cools down.
Once eggs have cooled to a handling temperature, place the entire pot under cool running water and then drain.
Do this a couple times to ensure the eggs are not too hot. (Alternatively let the eggs cool for 15 minutes.)
Remove the shell.
All done and ready to eat!
