Why would I EVER have a recipe for boiling an egg? Well, in theory it’s a simple task. After you boil an egg the problem comes when you start to peel it.
I would boil eggs and half the egg would stick to the shell. Please tell me I am not the only one who struggles with this issue – it was such a waste! I tried different things like not using fresh eggs, run cold or lukewarm water over the egg while I was peeling it, different saucepans and the list goes on.
Here’s how I boil an egg that peels easily:
- Put a ½ cup of water in a saucepan.
- Grab a metal vegetable steamer (like this one) and place it in the saucepan.
- Add the number of eggs needed and place on the steamer.
- Put the lid over the saucepan and put it on a medium heat.
- Set a timer for 15 minutes and let it do it’s thing.
- When the time is completed, remove from the heat, take the steamer out of the saucepan so the eggs can cool.
- Peel eggs under cool running water.
- Rinse to make sure you got off the small egg shell pieces and then use in your favorite recipe, store in a glass container in the refrigerator or enjoy immediately.
