Hard Boiled Eggs


Don't Ruin Your Hard Cooked Eggs!

To peel hard-cooked eggs, crack them by tapping them gently in two or three places and place them in a pan of cold water. If this doesn't work for you, try the following:

  • Hold a boiled egg in one hand and a spoon in the other.
  • Strike the egg with the edge of the spoon.
  • Rotate the egg 90 degrees and repeat.
  • Continue until the egg is cracked all the way around.
  • Hit the side of the egg above the crack.
  • Slightly squeeze the egg in the middle.
  • With a slight twisting motion, lift off the shell's top.
  • Hit the side of the egg below the crack.
  • With the same twisting motion, lift off the shell's bottom.

Visitor's Suggestion

Poke an egg with a small sewing needle before hard boiling, and the egg will peel with ease. Hold that needle in place with a magnet refrigerator clip!
