I love this tried and true method for making hard-boiled eggs!

Everyone has their own method for peeling hard-boiled eggs, but I like to tap the egg on the counter, roll it with my hand on the counter a couple times, and peel it under running water. I hope this helps you achieve perfect eggs! Enjoy!

    The last time I hard boiled eggs, I steamed them. Turned out perfectly and they were so easy to peel (and these were fresh from my chickens, so they shouldn’t have been easy to peel). I think it was 20 minutes.

    I use an egg cooker. Poke a hole in the egg, put them in the cooker, add the water using the measuring cup that comes with the cooker and cover. When it buzzes, eggs are done perfectly, every time!! I love this handy, inexpensive kitchen gadget. Easy peel, too!
