Perfectly Peel-able Hard Boiled Eggs


Do you get tired of peeling eggs or they end up all mangled because you can't seem to find am method that works? I think I've tried them all - vinegar or baking soda to the water, poke a hole in the bottom, adjust the times, use a rack, use an instapot...but this has become my favorite method.


It's super simple, I've yet to mess it up and the kids can even peel the eggs without looking like they took a cheese grater to them!


Perfectly Peel-able Hard Boiled Eggs

1. Bring eggs to room temperature. I like to pull them out of the fridge first thing in the morning. Cold eggs will crack in the boiling water.


2. Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil.


3. Gently add eggs in one layer, reduce to a simmer and let cook for 13 minutes. 4. Immediately put eggs in ice bath for 5 minutes. You can peel them immediately and store in an airtight container for a couple days or peel them later. If your eggs are cracking or exploding, they’re either too cold or overcrowded in your pot. Let me know if you try it!
