Maybe this isn’t news to you but I saw this pin and got all excited. My son has recently discovered hard boiled eggs, at least deviled eggs anyways, and since I’m not a huge fan I don’t have a lot of practice boiling eggs. When I tried a few times it never seemed as easy as it was supposed to be and that annoys me. So where this felt like a foolproof way to get it done I was on board immediately.
My eggs cooked closer to 30 minutes and were super duper hot for a while so I quickly plucked them from the pan and let them cool on a pot holder for a bit. Once they were cool enough I got peeling. The first one I did was super easy, the shell came off fast and easy. There were a few brown spots which I assume are little burnt areas. No biggie to me. Then the second two eggs were a bit more annoying. The shell was stuck to the egg really well so once I was able to peel it off a pretty thick layer of the white came with it. So as you can see I had what looked like mini eggs. I sliced into them easy and the yolks looked good, a little greenish on the outer part. I heard somewhere along the way that the greenish color means it was cooked too long so that makes sense here.Bottom Line – Do it!While I let them bake a little too long, the general results were still fantastic and with less room for error than boiling, though you should note I still managed to find the error! Whatever my 1 year old eats sticks so I can’t imagine a little green yolk is going to bother him!Stephanie
