I have tried everything from different boiling times to baking soda to vinegar to pricking the egg with a needle just to get a good hard boiled egg. UGH! So frustrating. For real, one of my biggest pet peeves is to have the shell take off chunks of the egg or that membrane that wont come off. You can ask my sisters or my babies, I get so frustrated I want to cry. I hate wasting food, I typically do 18-24 at a time. You can imagine the frustration when only half the egg is left:( I wised up and only did a few this time just in case it didn't work. And guess what, it did...the time I only do a few...go figure.
Maybe I should title this hard boiled eggs for dummies. Apparently everyone else in my family can peel the egg just fine with it just in water but I can't :( But put a smile on and look at these little gems...
They are going in my belly! One of them cracked when I put it in the water so it is a little misshapen, oops, but they are perfect to me:)
So, here is what to do...
When the timer beeps, I drain the pot and place the eggs in a large bowl. Then I pour cool tap water over them. Wait 1 min while I wash the pot. Begin to peel and the shells fall right off! SCORE!!! I am so happy, I could do a happy dance. Maybe I did but my babies made me stop, just maybe;) I hope this helps anyone else who needs a fool proof was to hard boil an egg. Leave comments below with what you think. Or if you have any of your own tricks. God Bless!
