Hard Boiled Eggs

I have tried lots of methods to make hard-boiled eggs that are easy to peel. Until today, I had never found one that really worked. So I wanted to share this with you.

Bring one inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Place large eggs in the basket (no more than will cover the bottom). Cover the pan; cook for 12 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain, crack and peel.

According to the American egg board, the pressure created by the steam forces the membrane to separate from the egg, making it easy to peel.

Instapot hard boiled eggs:

Place one cup of water in instapot.
Put eggs on on rack
Set to pressure cook for 5 minutes.
Let steam release for 5 minutes.
After steam release use spatula or cover hand in towel to manually release remaining steam.
Use tongs or if you have hands of steel to move eggs to cold water bath
Crack eggs and see how easy it is!
Hard boiled eggs are good at room temperature for two hours and you can peel and keep in fridge for up to 7 days.

  1. This WORKS!!! I just peeled a dozen eggs so fast and so easy. No eggs sticking to the peels…they came right off and I ended up with 12 smooth hard boiled eggs. I think I might steam them for 13 minutes instead of 12 if they are on the larger range of the large eggs grade.
