I don’t usually have a lot of trouble peeling boiled eggs but the last batch I made was AWFUL!  Every single egg was one of those where you peel off one tiny piece at a time and the eggs are a mess when you’re done.  After I had finished nine of the ten, my husband asked me if I had tried the method using a spoon.  I hadn’t.  I didn’t even know about it.  He described it to me and I thought it was worth trying.  Using the spoon, the tenth egg was fast and perfect.

I was skeptical that this technique really would work but I didn’t have any more eggs to try it on.  So yesterday I boiled four eggs for potato salad and gave it another try.  Okay.  It wasn’t a fluke.  This method really does work well.  I’ll be doing it this way from now on.

I have a few pictures of the process but they were difficult to get since I had to take them myself while peeling the egg.  I hope you get the idea.

First boil eggs using your favorite method.  When ready to peel, crack the egg so the shell is in little pieces.

  1. And this is one of the reasons why I love your blog, you share good, practical information! We use quite a few hard boiled eggs and I thought I hit the jackpot when I discovered the Dash egg cooker, the easiest way ever to hard boiled eggs. My eggs cooked with this cooker are typically easier to peel than those made other ways, but using the spoon I will be done peeling eggs in a snap. As always, thank you for sharing!
