Deviled eggs are a classic recipe and perfect for the holidays, potlucks, parties and other gatherings. I have tons of appetizer recipes, but Deviled eggs are my favorite, and what I love most is they are inexpensive and made with ingredients I always have on hand.
How Do You Boil Eggs So They Peel Easy
- Use you Instant Pot! Eggs cooked in the Instant Pot practically pop right out of there shells! It’s a game changer! You can see my post on how to make PERFECT hard boiled eggs or soft boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.
- Super fresh eggs are going to be hard to peel regardless of what you do, so it’s best NOT to hard-boil eggs the same day they are purchased. The best eggs for boiling are at least 10 days old.
- For best results, peel your eggs right after they are cool enough to handle. Fully chilled eggs will not peel well. You can peel your eggs ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator.
