Easy Peel Boiled Eggs

If your eggs are super fresh, adding bicarb soda will change the pH and assist with peeling. Older eggs don't need this.

  • as many eggs as you need
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda (optional)


  1. Place eggs in a small saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer.

  2. When the eggs start simmering, set your timer for 8 minutes.
  3. As soon as your timer rings, drain the eggs and transfer to a bowl. Run cold water over the eggs for a minute and then let the eggs sit in the water until cool.
  4. Bash the eggs on the side of your sink to crack the shells all over.
  5. Roll the egg between your hands to help loosen the membrane. Gently peel the membrane and shell from the eggs.
