Handy Tips for Quickly Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

February 26, 2015 2:02 pm

Hardboiled eggs provide a healthy, protein-packed snack, and you'd be hard-pressed to make egg salad without them! Still, peeling all of those hardboiled eggs isn’t quite as rewarding as eating them. Here are a few smart tips to help you peel hardboiled eggs quickly and efficiently.

  1. It starts with cooking. Make your hardboiled eggs easier to peel by cooking them properly right from the beginning. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the eggs by one inch, and be sure to heat it to a rolling boil before turning off the heat and covering the pot.
  2. Run the egg under cold water. Once you remove your eggs when they're done cooking, finish the cooking process by running them under cold water.
  3. Crack the egg. Gently but firmly drop one of your cooked eggs on the countertop until it is completely covered in cracks.
  4. Roll. Next, roll the egg across the surface of the counter with the palm of your hand to loosen the shell and prepare it to slide off.
  5. Peel from the large end. Finally, begin to peel the egg starting with the larger, wider end. If you did all of the other steps properly, it should come off in one fell swoop.
