Just make sure that when peeling the egg, you get the skin with the shell.

Thank you, Chief. That's a much more detailed description of what I do The last time I made them, I cooled them and put them in the fridge because I wasn't ready to peel and make the deviled eggs right away. So when I was ready to do that, I used a mixing bowl to help separate the eggs from the shells.

I find that if a shell cracks, less of the white leaks out, when the water is salted. I have also seen eggs with small in their shells seal themselves up in salted water. I'm talking about cracks that appeared while the eggs were being boiled.

Shucks, I gave all my Food Saver bags to Spike. Other wise I would experiment for you.

I do have some heavy duty Hefty freezer bags. I am off to experiment. Stay tuned. Will get back to you.

Maybe slam the edge of the bag in the toaster oven? Now we know you have one of those!

Oh my! I have a Euro Pro iron with a very large water tank. You can iron for almost three hours before the tank needs to be refilled. I also have a very old ironing board that I found in a thrift shop in Tacoma in the early 70's. I paid the grand sum of $.69 for it. It is all wood. I have a pile of material pieces from projects. When my cover gets too stained or dirty in spots, I will cut a piece up and with Stitch Witchery, I cover the offending spot. I have had the cover as long as the board. I even mend the mended spots. It was on the board when I bought it. I iron everything in my house that is cotton. All my clothes are 100% cotton. Cotton tablecloths. But I do not iron my cotton undies. I am one of those fools who loves to iron.

When our kids were small and in school, I would get my iron and head to my sisters house. She had two ironing boards for our special day. She hated ironing and would put it off as long as she could. So when I would show up, she had quite a pile to be ironed. I always ended up getting the dresses with ruffles and other difficult trimmings that called for fussy ironing. Between the two of us, we got it all done by the time the kids got home from school.

Criminy. I can't even remember the last time I ironed something, and I'm positive I've never ironed for three hours

When DH was in Navy A school, he was required to wear the Navy-issued dungarees and blue shirt, ironed just so, with sharp creases in the shirt. We had been married less than a year at that point; he expected me to iron his uniforms but I set him straight. He was in the Navy, not me. So it was his responsibility to follow their regulations.

LIKE!!

I learned to iron very young doing my Dad's Air Force uniforms. Mom hated ironing and she had three girls...guess who did it. I think I was about 12 when I decided I was not married to my Dad and I wasn't ironing his clothes anymore. Mom has an ironing pile that is so old, I bet they find Jimmy Hoffa in it.

Back to the egg boiling. Wondering if I can just crack them into a ramekin and steam them for easy hard boiled eggs for salads, etc. Most of the time we boil up a dozen just to have them for egg salad, they don't have to be pretty for that.

I think that would work or as Chief mentioned poaching them longer than usual. I think it would be nice to find a TNT method for serving large groups, like your firefighters, things like egg salad, potato salad etc.

I posted this somewhere recently

They say it works perfectly with as many eggs as you can fit in your pressure cooker.
