Hard Boiled Eggs

Finally, hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel every time!

It drives me crazy that hard boiled eggs are sometimes easy to peel and sometimes it’s a horrible mess. I’ve tried several methods with spotty success but I think Jenny Chang at BuzzFeed figured it out using the scientific method in her article I Tested Out Popular Tricks To Make Hard-Boiled Eggs Easier To Peel! I’ve used this method 3 times with excellent success. Read her article! Short form:

  • Don’t worry about how old your eggs are
  • Add 1 tbsp of vinegar to about 4 cups of water
  • add eggs to boiling water and cook for 14 minutes
  • chill immediately (I refill the pot with cold water twice)
  • peel as soon as cool

Faux Hollandaise Sauce

Dipping fried egg in a tiny bit of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing tastes JUST LIKE hollandaise sauce! Yum!
