Do you struggle with peeling hard-boiled eggs? I think I have finally figured out how to perfectly peel an egg without removing big chunks off egg! I must not be alone in this struggle because a quick Google search will give you a million ideas on how to get a better hard-boiled egg. I’ve tried many methods – using older eggs, adding salt, changing the boil time etc but I think I have found a super simple solution.
The answer: Be patient and wait a day.
I’ve tested this on last 3 batches of hard-boiled eggs. The eggs peeled immediately are a mess, but the shells of the day old eggs slip right off.
My Recipe: From Better Homes & Garden cookbook
- Place eggs in a single layer in pot.
- Cover with cold water.
- Bring to rapid boil.
- Remove from heat and cover. Let sit 15 minutes.
- Remove hot water and let cool.
- My Step: Let sit in fridge overnight before peeling.
Test this out yourself and let me know what you discover!
P.S. Eggs are a super frugal way to add protein to your meals! You can hide an egg or two in almost any dinner! Stir fries and casseroles are my favorite.
