Not too jammy, not too hard, and easy to peel – here is my fail proof method to get the perfect hard boiled egg every time!
I have always loved hard boiled eggs. They are nature’s protein bar! Such a good combo of protein and healthy fats and no sugar – they are a great snack, a great breakfast, and one of my favorite things to add to salads. But I have honestly always been too scared to try to make them myself. I only first tried about a month ago! I tried a bunch of different methods I found off the internet and ended up using a mismatch way that worked best for me – it got me the best yolk and they are easy to peel! So how do I do it?
Let’s Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs!
I usually do 6 eggs at a time. I don’t like to keep them in my fridge longer than a week or so, so this is the perfect amount to have about one a day – whether it is as part of my breakfast, an afternoon snack when I get hangry, or with my dinner!
So get a medium sized pot and put your eggs on the bottom. Then fill it with water, just until the eggs are covered.
After that – put 1/2 tsp of baking soda in the water. This helps make the shells easier to peel once they are done! Put the pan over medium high heat and cover it until it starts to boil. Once it is boiling, put a timer on for 6 minutes. While they are cooking make an ice bath by filling a large bowl with cold water and then putting a bunch of ice cubes in it to make it really cold.
Once the timer goes off, immediately spoon your eggs out, transfer them to the ice bath (this stops the cooking process) and let them cool. Then I dry them off and usually just store back in the carton! Just don’t forget which are hard boiled if you put them in there with the uncooked eggs too 🙂
One other thing that supposedly helps with the shells is to roll it on your counter before peeling. I am not sure if I think this one helps – but hey no harm in trying!
In addition to the eggs, you will need:
- baking soda
- a medium pot with a cover
- a drainable spoon
