Updated {perfect} hard-boiled egg method HERE. Works for fresh eggs, too!

Perfect Hard-boiled Eggs

This is how I’ve been boiling eggs for years and I’m sorry it’s taken until now to share the method with you. Please forgive me. That’s what happens when chocolate cake takes over your life. No time to share practical things like eggs.

Hard-boiled eggs are easy-peasy but there are a few tricks of the trade when it comes to peeling.

If you want easier-to-peel eggs, don’t use fresh eggs. The older the egg, the better it will peel so buy your eggs a week or two in advance and let them sit in your fridge until ready to boil.

Also, adding a bit of salt to the water while boiling supposedly helps and I’ve always employed this method, but be aware, there are lots of “I swear this works” out there when it comes to boiling/peeling eggs and I’ve learned my lesson that, really, 99% depends on the age of the eggs and the other 1% is salt, lots of cracking, and peeling them under warm water.

We make hard-boiled eggs at least once a week with our breakfast rotation and this is our tried-and-true method.

No better time to share since the season of egg dyeing and deviled eggs is upon us!
