How to boil eggs so they peel easily?
- Fast results with the Instant Pot: I think the easiest way to peel eggs is to cook them in the pressure cooker – they literally pop out of their shell. look at mine Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs recipe to find out how to do it.
- No instant pot? If you don’t have a pressure cooker and prefer to cook them in a pot, make sure your eggs aren’t too fresh. Eggs are easier to peel when they are at least 10 days old.
- When to peel: For best results, after cooking, place the eggs in a medium bowl of ice and peel your eggs once they are cool enough to handle. Fully chilled eggs don’t peel well.
- Make-Ahead Hard Boiled Eggs: You can peel your eggs ahead of time and keep them in the fridge for up to seven days.
Variations and Tips
- Mayo: Replace mayonnaise with Greek yogurt.
- Pickles: For extra flavor, add your favorite sweet pickle relish, chopped dill pickles, or pickle juice to the yolk filling.
- Vinegar: Stir in some red wine vinegar for some acidity.
- Bacon: Before eating, sprinkle them with chopped bacon.
- Fresh herbs: Substitute fresh dill, parsley, or finely chopped spring onions for chives.
- Make it sharp: Add horseradish, hot sauce, cayenne pepper or jalapeño.
- Spices: Sub-chili powder for peppers.
