perfect hard boiled eggs

eggs 2

if every time you cook hard boiled eggs, you struggle to peel them, this is a quick little tip for you.

  • place eggs in a pot and fill with cold water to just above the eggs.
  • cook eggs on medium high heat until boiling. 
  • once the water comes to a boil, set a timer and let eggs continue to boil for 5 minutes. 
  • after 5 minutes, remove eggs from heat, drain, and run under cold water. 
  • place eggs in a bowl filled halfway with water.
  • fill the bowl the rest of the way with ice and let sit for about 15-20 minutes.

  • after 20 minutes, remove eggs from ice water and crack with a spoon by tapping all over the entire surface of the egg. 
  • peel egg and rinse with water. 
  • enjoy!

make deviled eggs, cut them up and add them to a salad, or just cut them in half. i like to just cut mine in half and add a little bit of cayenne pepper...yum!
