I bring the eggs up to boil with the water to avoid messy and sometimes fatal results from adding eggs directly to the boiling water. When they are finished I put them in a large bowl of cold water to cool. I also find they peel better if they are set out for awhile to warm rather than when freshly taken out of the fridge.

After cooking, I drain the hot water, shake the pan to crack the eggs in a few places, add cold water and let sit for a bit. Shells comes right off. The eggs are still warm.

I used to poke them with a pin, but it's really a waste of time, doesn't help that much and sometimes it causes the white to run out of the shell while it's cooking.

Also, in case you don't already do this, peel the boiled eggs with the help of  a spoon slipping the spoon under the shell.

This is exactly what I do.  Shells slip off!

Re HffPost article: No mention of deviled eggs, but I can probably guess....

Back to original topic, though.  Hard boiled eggs are cooked at a lower temperature than pan-fried or scrambled.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
