The last time you made hard boiled eggs…how painful was it to peel it?
My kids LOVE hard boiled eggs but peeling them was SO PAINFUL! chunks coming off all over!
We tried putting vinegar in the water.
We tried putting baking soda in the water.
We tried cracking them and soaking them in water.
But do you know what worked?
STEAMING THE EGGS!
Boil water in a pot, add the steaming basket with the eggs, cover the pot. Turn the burner off (but leave the pot sitting on the burner) and let the eggs sit for 15 minutes.
*Works like a charm, we’re on 16 or so eggs and they’ve been perfect every time!
**Edit: Turns out your eggs need to be over a week old – this process works great with older eggs!**
