How to Peel an Egg

  1. After you've boiled your eggs, drain the pot, run it under cold water and then add ice to it. Adding ice shocks the egg, making it easier to peel the shell off. 
  2. Take your egg and tap each end gently enough so that the ends crack. You can do this with a spoon, or against the counter/sink. 
  3. Once you've tapped both ends of the egg, roll it a few times on the countertop. 
  4. Then, peel from the larger end, making sure to get under the thin membrane. The shell should come off easily!

I would love to be able to make deviled eggs but I have no luck at all peeling hard boiled eggs. I follow the directions and peel them under cold water but I have to make 3 dozen hard boiled eggs in order to get one dozen that are presentable to take anywhere. The whites are always all torn up. And I'm stuck with eating egg salad for a week.
