ROFL! I have tried it and it works ... if you use enough baking soda. But if you use enough baking soda, they sorta slip off without blowing ... :)

If you use enough baking soda, you can just squeeze and pop the egg out.
UNLESS the eggs are extremely fresh. Fresh eggs are harder to peel.

Eggs

My method also..... With a little modification.
Crack the shells well, all over.
In the large end at the air pocket, slip a small teaspoon between the membrane inside the shell and the egg.
"Roll" the egg around the spoon. The shell should break away.

Keep the spoon wet.
May take a couple practice runs. There is always Egg Salad for the Goof Ups!

That site is blocked by my work, but if it's the method where you peel the bottom and the top of the shell off, I have tried it, and it does work, however it's very unhygienic and it really hurt my mouth when I tried it.

It was cute, but I don't recommend it.

Also, I heard Alton Brown say that if you add some salt to the water while boiling eggs, it helps with peeling. Is there any truth to this (not that I think he would lie or anything), and if so, why?
