The Secret to Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs (and how to make them easy to peel!)
How to Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
If you know a little bit about me you know that I love cool tools for my kitchen! And they don’t have to be very expensive for me to get excited about them either! This egg timer is one of my favorite kitchen tools so I am excited to share it with you so you can get one in time for Easter. I shared this tool a few years ago so I thought I would bring it back to share with some of you that have not discovered the awesomeness!
Easter is almost here. Time to dye your Easter eggs! For some reason I used to kinda stink at making perfect hard boiled eggs. But now I am a pro! All I do is drop in my Egg-Perfect Egg Timer and have the kids watch it change colors.
It’s so easy to use! All you do is put your eggs and the timer in the pan and turn on the heat to bring the eggs to a boil (hint: to make the eggs easy to peel also add a couple tablespoons of baking soda to the water).
You can see the color starting to change. It is at a soft boil right now. We are going for hard so we are going to keep boiling.
Now that the whole egg has turned a dark red color. Now I will just have to run my eggs under some cold water to let them cool down. I let the timer cool with the eggs. Cooling the eggs down quickly with cool water will help make them easier to peel as well! I do that by running cold water into the pot as soon as they are done cooking (ps – don’t dump the hot water out, just set the pot in your sink and run cold water into the hot water until all the hot water leaves).
