How To Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Here’s my perfect hard boiled eggs recipe. Learn how to cook them perfectly using two different cooking methods: stovetop and Instant Pot (pressure cooker). No ugly greenish-gray rings here! I tend to use the stovetop method when I am only making a few eggs and reach for the Instant Pot when making 6 or more eggs.

How to easily peel hard boiled eggs?

Here are 3 tips for easy-to-peel hard boiled eggs. 1) Don’t use super fresh eggs. Farm fresh eggs will be harder to peel than a carton bought from the grocery store. 2) Finish in an ice bath. Immediately placing the eggs in an ice water bath after cooking makes it harder for the whites to stick to the shell. 3) Crack eggs all over. Gently tap all over to crack the shell everywhere and roll on the countertop with the palm of your hand. This will loosen the outer shell for easy removal.
