After boiling I drain the pot and let them cool for about ten minutes. I like to place the egg under water for a second (just in case they’re still hot and because the shell doesn’t seem to stick as much) and then peel them. How about you?

Hey Val!

I got this tip from Emeril’s television show . . .

Bring the eggs to a boil, turn off the heat, let sit with lid on for 10 minutes . . . they are perfect every time and the shells don’t stick to the egg.

Thanks for linking up to my WW linky 🙂

Merry Christmas to you and your family . . . Gina

Sorry, I don’t eat boiled eggs. I’ve seen my husband lightly tap them on the table and rotate them. That’s how he gets the peeling off.

I wait it cools a little bit, wrap it lightly in a paper toll and roll the egg lightly on the counter top.

I boil them, cool them quickly in cold running water, then I crack the shell all over by gently tapping on the edge of the sink. Once the shell is all broken, then I peel it. I find it helps get that membrane off!

I’m with Kassandria, no yolks for me either. I do it the same as you Val.

I usually don’t have time to let it cool! I just dump the boiling water, fill the pot with cold water and peel them in the water – and my fingers just barely burn… 🙂

I’m terrible at peeling, thanks!
