I hated peeling hard-boiled eggs, at least until I found out about this trick.
We tried all sorts of ways of getting the shell off of hard-boiled eggs. Adding baking soda, baking eggs in the oven, and soaking in ice water, and different cooking times. We’d end up with half the egg being torn off with the shell. 9 times out of 10 we’d have mauled over eggs.
But our egg peeling woes came to end when one of Mark’s coworkers gave him the secret to hard boiling eggs. The results perfectly to allow the shell to easily release from the egg. We’ve tested it out half a dozen times already and declare this method a winner.
So here’s how you get er done…
Perfectly Hard-Boiled Egg
1. Bring a pot of water boil.
2. Add the eggs to the boiling water with a slotted spoon, (or Mix N. Masher) and set the timer for 8 minutes.
3. Cover the pot and let the water come to a boil.
4. Once the timer goes off, you can turn it off and let the eggs cool on the stove for at least 20 minutes.
5. Peel them up.
This is how I peel them and I think it works the best. I crack one side of the egg and roll it along the counter as I slightly press down. This will crack the shell all the way around and it’s super easy to peel off.
There you have it. From people who obviously eat too many hard-boiled eggs.
