Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs {Tasty Tuesdays}

Do you know how to make perfect hard boiled eggs?

How to make perfect hard boiled eggs

Over a year ago, I happened upon this video by Tim Ferriss (of the very famous Four Hour Work Week):

I was looking for a solution to a very common problem that was causing us a lot of trouble in the mornings–hard boiled eggs that wouldn't peel easily. The shell would break into too many pieces, or the egg would come off with the shell. Since my kids often eat an egg along with their toast or pancakes in the morning, this was happening too often! In the video, not only does Tim share the recipe for making perfect hard boiled eggs, he also demonstrates a fun way to peel them–by blowing the egg right out of the shell. We have tried time and time again and have not been able to do that a single time successfully. But we have been using the recipe ever since, and it is so helpful.

    There are so many methods out there for boiling eggs, but this one has been successful for us for quite a while now! I use a regular-sized saucepan and add 6-8 eggs for each batch. Besides a quick breakfast, we also use them as extra protein in packed swim meet meals or chopped on top of lunch or dinner salads.
