TIPS FOR PEELING HARD BOILED EGGSThere is nothing more frustrating than trying to peel a hard boiled egg, only to have the shell stick and rip off pieces and parts of your egg white. Not only is it super frustrating…it can also create really ugly egg whites if you are trying to make deviled eggs. Although they still taste great, they aren’t as pretty to look at! I am sharing something I have learned over the years to help your eggs peel as easily as possible.
- Use eggs that are a little older. Let them sit in your fridge for a few days before boiling them. The fresher eggs don’t peel as easily.
- Do not over boil your eggs. One thing about steaming your eggs in the Instant Pot, really creates eggs that are perfectly cooked. This also means that they are going to peel so much easier than a boiled egg! Every time I make my eggs in my Instant Pot, I have great results! I won’t go back to boiling them again!
- After your eggs are cooked, have a bowl of ice water ready and waiting. Plunge the eggs into the cold water and let them sit for several minutes. I always wait at least 10 minutes before peeling them.
HOW TO MAKE HARD BOILED EGGSSo easy! You won’t go back to hard boiling eggs in any other way! Watch our video to learn how to make hard boiled eggs in the instant pot.
