Failsafe, No-Think Hardboiled Eggs

eggbath2.JPGHave you every tried to peel an egg, only to end up with bits and pieces of the shell stuck to the egg? Do your hard-boiled eggs end up dimpled? This was always a problem for me, especially when boiling eggs for deviled eggs. Dimpled eggs aren’t very pretty.

I learned a trick that makes hard-boiled eggs easy to peel! You will have beautiful hard-boiled eggs when they get an ice-water bath. When eggs are easy to peel, even picky eaters will be able to peel their own eggs, making them more interesting to eat!

Boil eggs the fail safe way:
1. Cover eggs with two inches of cold water in a pan.

2. Bring to a full boil. Place the lid on the pan and turn the heat off. Wait twenty minutes.

Ensure an easy peel, give your hard-boiled eggs an ice water bath.

3. Remove eggs from the hot water with a slotted spoon. Immediately place in an ice water bath. Allow to fully cool. Then remove the eggs from the ice-water and pat dry.

  1. HI! Didn’t know that about the “icebath” We eat a ton of hard boiled eggs, I’m going to start doing that! Thanks for that tip!

  2. Once you have boiled your eggs for as long as you want if you just place the egg on a firm surface and as your rolling the egg press down on them slightly the shell will come off quite easy, try it, it works really well. Good Luck!!
