Can you perfectly peel a boiled egg?
I LOVE deviled eggs, but I hate peeling the eggs because it takes forever and they always, always turn out ugly. Why ugly? Because there always seems to be chunks missing from the eggs as a result of the peeling process.
Well not anymore!
So here's the way you too can get perfectly peeled boiled eggs.
- Place the eggs in a pot and cover them completely with COLD water.
- Put them on the stove to boil.
- Once the water comes to a rapid boil, set a timer for 20 minutes. (leaving the burner turned on)
- When finished boiling, turn the stove off and let the water calm down.
- Pour the water off the eggs and refill the pot with cold water and wait a few seconds.
- Pour the water off and refill it again with cold water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
- Pour the water off the eggs.
- To crack the eggs, tap it on the counter and then using your palm, roll the egg on the counter till the whole egg shell has been cracked.
- Start to peel the shell off and it should basically fall off.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one who didn't know how to correctly peel an egg or not. But I sure am glad that I figured it out. So I'm sharing this for all of you out there who may not already know the precious secret.
Good Luck!Pin It
