Cook Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs Every Time
Over the years I have tried a few different ways to hard-boil an egg. It sounds like a simple task, right? Believe it or not, I have undercooked or overcooked a Hard-Boiled Egg.
I’ve cooked them with boiling water on a stovetop, tried the microwave, even baking them.
The best way I found to Cook Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs Every Time is by Steaming them. This really was the simplest way and they came out perfect every time.
When you Steam Eggs you should simply place them in a steamer and set the timer for 20 minutes. They turn out perfect every time and are very easy to peel.
Why Steamed Eggs are easier to peel is that eggshells are permeable, so while steaming eggs get moisture from the steam penetrated the shell. Which causes the egg white to pull away from the membrane (the thin layer of skin) eggshell.
How long to keep Egg Salad?
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), hardboiled eggs should be used within a week, shelled, or peeled. Egg Salad can last between 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Discard Egg Salad if left out at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Eggs left out longer than 2 hours and below 40 F can grow bacteria.
Which makes for super easy peeling. To find out more about Steaming Eggs check out our article.
