How to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs Easily:
There are many ways to peel hard boiled eggs easily. Trust me when I say that we have tried them all. Here are some easy way to peel eggs without damaging the eggs.
- Chill Eggs – Place the eggs in a cold water ice bath for a few minutes. The shells will come right off.
- Roll the Egg – After you egg has cooled, gently roll the egg on the counter. This helps to crack the shell making it easy to peel.
- Peel at the Bottom – On the bottom of the egg there is a air pocket. I simply hit the bottom of the egg on the counter which makes it crack. Then start peeling from that air pocket. The shell will come right off.
Deviled Eggs Paula Deen Recipe Tips:
- Boil Eggs – We recommend boil the eggs ahead of time. This allows the eggs time to cool. This will save about 15 minutes already having them prepared.
- Sharp Knife – Slice the eggs with a sharp knife so that you have a clean cut. It also prevents the egg from breaking or tearing.
- Divide Yolk Filling – You want to make sure that you are evenly adding the mixture to the egg whites.
