How to Peel a Hard Boiled Egg the Fast and Easy Way

Save

Hard boiled eggs make a quick, light and nutritious breakfast, but peeling them can be messy and tedious. An efficient method involves quickly cooling the eggs when they're done to stop the cooking process; this also creates a layer of steam that helps separate the egg white from the shell.

Things You'll Need

  • Hard boiled egg
  • Your hands
  • cool running water
  • After hard boiling your egg, cool it under cold running water.

  • Crack the shell on a hard surface on several spots around the egg, preferably at the top and at the bottom.

  • Gently roll the egg between both hands.This effectively loosens the membrane of the egg, allowing you to remove the shell, often in one or two pieces.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure the egg is cooled off a bit before picking it up. Don't rub too agressively unless you want a smashed egg hehe.
