How To Peel A Hardboiled Egg

I'm new and thought this would be a good way to share



Also...to the lady who lost her cat...I am so sorry! I had that happen to me a while back.

I suspect that eggs that can be peeled using this method are also the ones that are easy to peel in the normal fashion. I'd guess that if you went to the market and bought a dozen eggs then hard cooked them, less than 50% would peel this easily.

I plan hard cooked eggs about 2 weeks ahead of time. Buy the eggs, mark the cartons and put in back of the fridge. 2 weeks later I drag them out boil them up and they peel effortlessly. So, I usually have eggs in the back of the fridge that Shrek can't touch!

Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Does anyone have any tricks for easing the peeling of hard boiled eggs? I have tried submerging the eggs in cold water immediately after cooking but that does not consistently work. Thanks!
