Here are the simple directions on how to make easy peel hard boiled eggs.
1) Add eggs in a stove top pot and enough water to fully submerge eggs. Cover, place on high heat and bring water to boil (the time it will take to boil will depend on how much water/eggs you are cooking, but for 4 eggs, it will take around 7-8 minutes).
2) Once water is boiling, use the chart below to cook eggs to your liking. Note – the more rare eggs are, the harder the shell will be to peel.
3) Once eggs are cooked to your liking, remove stove top pot from heat and let eggs sit for 2 minutes.
5) Take an egg and gently hit both top and bottom of the egg on a hard surface to create a crack in the shell. Using the palm of your hands, gently roll and the egg on a hard surface to create cracks all the way around the shell. Peel the eggs and the shell should come off in 1-2 large pieces. Note – if you are using fresher eggs with thicker outer membrane, you will have to get underneath the membrane prior to peeling off, otherwise the outer membrane will peel off portions of the egg whites.
All done, hope your enjoy your easy peel hard boiled eggs!
