My Easy Way to Peel a Hard Boiled Egg

I’ve tried a few ways to peel hard-boiled eggs, not all.  But this is the one that is easiest and works best for me.

Step 1

When the eggs are done boiling, drain the boiling water, leaving the eggs in the pan.

Step 2

Run cold water over the eggs until you can handle them with your hands without it burning!

Step 3

Take each egg out and crack 2-3 times on the counter all around the egg.

Step 4

Drain the water again, add the eggs back into the pan, and run cold water over them to cover.

Step 5

Let sit for 10 minutes.  Peel EASILY!

This works because the water has a way to seep in under the shell and helps to lift it from the egg.
