Hard boiled eggs can be the perfect solution to whipping up an impressive last minute appetizer like deviled eggs, make egg salad sandwiches for your child’s lunch, or pack yourself some on-the-go protein. They’re inexpensive, and fairly easy to make. That is, for everything but the peeling.

To hard boil the perfect egg, put your eggs in a pot, and fill with cold water until the eggs are covered. Now, add ¼ cup of vinegar, and a teaspoon of salt into the water as well. Set your burner to a medium-high heat, and boil for 6-10 minutes, depending on how done you’d like them to be — 6 minutes will give you a soft boiled egg, where 10 will give you a well done hard boiled egg. Once your timer has gone off, remove the eggs individually with a slotted spoon and tap on the counter to crack the shell slightly. Then place in a bowl of ice water to prevent them from continued cooking. Now, once cooled, you can peel the eggs. The vinegar and salt in the water will make this step a breeze. You won’t be dealing with digging out tiny shards of eggshell from under your fingernails. Instead, you’ll be peeling large chunks of shell, cutting your peeling time in half, if not more.
