The number one tip I have for you is how to hard boil eggs for easy peeling.

This has probably been your biggest frustration if you've ever made deviled eggs. I'm here to solve it for you.

Easy peel eggs 101

  1. Bring the water to a boil BEFORE adding the eggs!
  2. Add the eggs to the boiling water using a spoon.
  3. Prepare an ice bath.
  4. Boil for 7-8 minutes.
  5. Drain the water from the eggs and add the eggs to the ice bath.
  6. Adding the eggs to the water after it has reached a boil helps them to separate from the shell more easily.

When you add eggs at the beginning, not only are they harder to cook until cooked through, but they're also more likely to stick to the shell.

I promise this method will make it easy for you to peel hard boiled eggs every time.
