Enjoy some fluffy, yellow boiled eggs that are quick to make and easy to peel!
  • eggs (I used about 4 in a small saucepan)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Place eggs in a saucepan on a stove, with cold water enough to cover them. Turn the heat to high and bring the water to a boil. As soon as it boils, cover the pan and turn off the stove (leaving the pan where it is). Let the pan sit for 5 minutes before pouring off the hot water and transferring the eggs to a separate bowl to cool for 2 minutes. Run cold water over the eggs for a few seconds after they’ve cooled a bit and then drain it off. To peel, crack the egg on one side and then on the opposite side. Gently roll it back and forth to create a “web” of broken shell. Now you should be able to peel as easy as pie! The thin membrane just inside the shell will act like a little net, helping you peel away the shell easily. Salt and pepper and eat — or use in a recipe!
