Making hard boiled eggs that peel easily is actually very easy to do.
The two most frustrating things about cooking hard-boiled eggs: the yolk isn’t pretty and the shell is difficult to get off. Check out how easy it is to get hard boiled eggs perfect at home every time.
- Get a pot to boil the eggs in.
- Add water to the pot. Amount of water doesn’t matter, as long as eggs are mostly underwater or completely underwater.
- Put the eggs in the pot after you add water. adding the eggs at this time prevents you from burning your fingers or having to use a utensil to drop them in once the water boils (risking breaking them.)
- Regardless of the amount of eggs or size of pot, set timer for 10 minutes ONCE THE WATER COMES TO A BOIL.
- After boiling eggs for 10 minutes, empty the pot and add cold water, letting the eggs sit in the cold water for at least 20 minutes.
- The eggs will peel so easily the shells literally fall right off.
- If you want the yolk a little less firm, decrease boiling time by a minute until you find what works for you. 10 minutes provides the perfect yolk firmness for most.
When adding eggs to the water, if they float, they are bad. DO NOT USE THEM!
Making hard boiled eggs is something I find a lot of people do not know how to do. By the way, you make pasta the same way…time for 10 minutes after water boils.
Eggs are among the healthiest foods you can eat. They are rich in high-quality protein, healthy fats and many essential vitamins and minerals. Eggs also have a few unique properties that make them egg-ceptionally weight loss friendly. Eggs are a killer weight loss food.
One large egg contains only about 78 calories, yet is very high in nutrients. Egg yolks are especially nutritious. An egg meal commonly consists of about 2–4 eggs. Three large boiled eggs contain less than 240 calories. One large egg contains about 78 calories. A meal consisting of 3 boiled eggs and vegetables contains only about 300 calories.
Eggs contain all the essential amino acids, and in the right ratios. This means your body can easily use the protein in eggs for maintenance and metabolism. Eating a high-protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism by up to 80–100 calories a day.
A high-protein diet may boost your metabolism by up to 80–100 calories per day, since extra energy is needed to help metabolize the protein in foods.
One hard boiled egg has 6 grams protein. The average person should have 56 grams per day protein, or 0.36 grams per pound of body weight.
Instead of watching calories, watch your fat intake. The average person should take in NO MORE THAN 60 grams of fat a day. Eggs are very low in fat and great for protein!
Make hard boiled eggs the night before work, taking 3 with you for breakfast while at your desk.
