Tips for making hard boiled eggs:

When it comes to making egg salad, you don’t really need pretty eggs, because you’re going to mash them up. When making deviled eggs however, you want the egg whites to be pretty. For that to happen, they need to peel easy. I have a couple tips for making sure your hard boiled eggs are easy to peel.

Tips for making hard boiled eggs

To get the perfectly cooked hard boiled egg you want to place the eggs in a pan with water and a pinch of salt. The pinch of salt helps the egg from cracking while boiling. Bring the eggs to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover. This allows the eggs to cook slower and helps over cooking them.

Once the eggs have cooked, immediately place them in an ice bath. This stops the cooking and helps make the eggs easier to peel.
