How do you get boiled eggs to peel easily?

Here are the instructions

First I place the eggs in a saucepan or pot of cold water and place it on the stove. This cold start is part of the magic. Bring the water to a boil.  I also use an Eggtimer – just to make sure my eggs are done.

After the eggs are boiling, add 1 TBSP of salt and turn the burner off. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

After the eggs are boiling, add 1 TBSP of salt and turn the burner off and set a timer for 10 minutes. Let the eggs sit until the timer goes off. 

Remove the eggs from the hot water and place in a bowl. Fill with cold water and ice. Keep the eggs here until they are completely cool.

Remove the eggs from the hot water and place them in an ice bath by filling a bowl with cold water and ice.  I use a slotted spoon to transfer them. Keep the eggs in the ice water bath until they are completely cool.

When moving the eggs from the large bowl of ice water, you can use the spoon again if you don’t want to touch the cold water, but they are cool to the touch so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself. You could also put a steamer basket in the bottom to help with easy removal.

See – they peel so easy!  It’s great! This is my secret for perfect hard-boiled eggs. Store you eggs in the fridge.

Now that you have your eggs, let’s talk about hard-boiled eggs recipe ideas:

  • Deviled eggs: Halve the eggs, remove the yolks, and mix them with mayonnaise, mustard, and other desired ingredients. Spoon the mixture back into the egg whites for a tasty appetizer or snack.
  • Egg salad: Chop the hard-boiled eggs and mix them with mayonnaise, mustard, diced celery, onions, and any other preferred seasonings. Serve the egg salad on bread, crackers, or lettuce leaves.
  • Cobb salad: Slice or chop the hard-boiled eggs and use them as a topping for a classic Cobb salad. Combine them with ingredients like lettuce, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, chicken, and blue cheese.

  • Ramen or noodle bowls: Slice hard-boiled eggs and add them to ramen or other noodle dishes. The creamy yolk adds richness to the broth and complements the flavors of the dish.

There are rumors of using older eggs vs. fresh eggs. I have not found a difference in my own experience. I have also heard you can use baking soda instead of salt, but I have not tried that. You can bake your eggs to hard boil them, and you can use pressure cooker as well. Cracks sometimes happen, and I just make the best of them.

  1. Great idea to use whipped cream instead of shaving cream! I’ve always thought that was an icky idea myself. I’ve thought of doing the nail polish eggs too because I have a lot of colors around that are getting too old to use. I do have a question about the boiled eggs. It looks like you have an electric stove and I do too. Does it make a difference if you turn the burner off or move it to a cold burner so that the heat source at the bottom of the pot is gone? My thought is that the water would cool faster during that 10 min. if the pot was taken off the burner but I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. What do you think?

    1. Thanks Linda. I haven’t tried taking the eggs off the heat to cool faster. My goal of leaving it on was to make sure the eggs get cooked all the way as a priority. Since I have an egg timer, I could try that the next time I make hard boiled eggs and see if taking it off the burner would make a difference… 🙂
