The BEST tip I ever got from Blogland! (so far...)

Hi everyone-Merry Christmas! I think Deviled Eggs are a great side dish and are fun on a relish tray. But for years I've cursed having to peel them! The shell always stuck and the whites got all dinged up. Well at Easter one great lady posted this fantastic-NO FAIL-technique for perfect hard boiled eggs. Unfortunately I was new to blogging did not copy the name of her blog, *head hanging in shame*. I have shared this with others and all have had success, so, I'd like to share it with you!
Look at how pretty, "Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close up"...
Directions:
  1. Boil enough water in a big enough pot to cover the amount of eggs you want to make. 
  2. Carefully add the eggs to the boiling water one by one with a big spoon. (They will not crack.)
  3. Reduce the heat just a bit, you still want the water boiling but not crazy. I use #7 on my electric stove.
  4. Boil for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain hot water, and cover eggs with cold water. I pour the cold water off a couple times. 
  6. Drain water and refrigerate until ready to peel. Peel under running cold water and make your Deviled Eggs.
This is a simple tip but really makes life a lot easier!
May your days be merry and bright, and your Deviled Eggs not look a fright:@)

  8. That's a great tip. After boiling mine I shut of the heat and cover for 20 minutes. Pour off the hot water, add cold and ice cubes. The peel comes off really easily. I'm going to try it your way too. Have a wonderful day.

  10. My foolproof method is to bring the eggs to a boil, immediately remove the pan from heat, cover and let sit for 20 minutes. Then I drain off the water and cover the eggs with cold water and ice cubes. Like you, I pour off the water several times. I let them sit until they cool off completely. I never experience the chemical reaction of the green tinged egg yolk with this method. Glad your method works for you, as well. :-)
