Life Hack: How to Peel 3 Easter Eggs in Less than 30 Seconds [Video]

Subscribe to Y105 Rochester on

I hated peeling hard cooked eggs until I learned THIS technique. If you do it, you’ll peel the Easter eggs so fast you’ll have time for a nap!

I know what you’re going to say…”Just add __ to the water!” or “Peel them under __ water!”  I’ve tried all the suggestions and no matter how I’ve modified the cooking or peeling process, I end up losing 1/4 of the eggs to straight up egg shells NOT peeling easily. It makes me so frustrated. Seriously…I’ve been known to throw eggs down the garbage disposal in frustration. “Fine! You wanna be unpeeled, take that!” ((grind crackle, schwoop…whirrrrrr))

I know that’s not the right way to react, but it does bug me and I’d literally stopped hard cooking eggs because of it. Until I found this cook-em-in-the-oven recipe from Alton Brown. I wanted to try it, but first, I did an intensive search for the best way to peel a hard cooked egg! I found it, and I wanted you to have it, too.

It’s fun and even little kids can do it! Watch the video, learn the technique, walk in happiness.

Here are the oveny instruction:

Position the oven racks in the center of the oven, then arrange the eggs in a mini muffin tin or directly on a thoroughly moist kitchen towel (click play on the video above for more info). Set the oven to 320 degrees F and bake for 30 minutes. When the eggs are done fill a large bowl with ice water and move the eggs into a bowl. Peel the eggs as soon as they are cool enough to handle, then return them to the ice bath to thoroughly chill.

He goes on to say that it can be harder to peel the eggs if you cook ’em this way, but that’s not true if you follow the directions in the video. If you can’t watch the video, come back tomorrow and I’ll have the transcription up.

Speaking of Easter, here’s how they make Honey Bunny Bread at Rochester’s Great Harvest Bread Company!
