Easy Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

With Easter and Passover right around the corner, my weekly egg consumption is about to get kicked up a notch! And frankly, I couldn’t be more thrilled. After a long, brutally cold winter, I am ready to embrace every aspect of spring and Passover is always the first sign of it in my family.

Beef Brisket - The Lemon Bowl

Although I was raised Jewish and performed a Bat Mitzvah, I was also exposed to Christian holiday traditions from my mom’s side of the family. From potato latkes on Hanukkah to sugar cookies on Christmas Eve to beef brisket on Rosh Hashanah, we never miss an excuse to cook with family.

Matzo Ball Soup - The Lemon Bowl

Since my Jewish relatives live out-of-state, my mother hosts a Seder locally whenever we are unable to fly out to Berkeley to attend my Ema Ljuba’s infamous Passover extravaganza. Yes, my Christian mother invites all of her Christian relatives over to dine on matzo and gefilte fish. It is completely fabulous. In fact, my (Christian) Aunt Patsy makes some of the most delicious matzo ball soup I’ve ever tasted. (Note to Self: Must share recipe soon.)

Seder Plate - The Lemon Bowl

One of the most important aspects of a traditional seder plate is a a perfectly hard boiled egg. Whether you are celebrating Passover or getting ready to color eggs for your Easter basket, I thought this would be a good technique to share.

Of course, eggs also make an ideal protein-packed snack any day of the year. Since I’m still breastfeeding my baby and have also returned to the gym, my egg consumption is at an all time high and for good reason. The more I learn about the importance of choline while breastfeeding, the more eggs I crave!

Your fork is waiting.

    This is how I make eggs also, although I use my inner timer. I’m old and have been cooking a long time, and it seems to work some how! Although I always seem to burn a pot when I cook white rice…

    this is my recipe also with one adjustment. I add a couple of tablespoons of salt to harden the shel which in turn makes it easier to peel.

    OK, so because all day, I’ve been in the “April Fool’s” mindset, when I saw this I was afraid you were joking. Even though you posted yesterday. But I just saw it today. But anyway, I was like “oh no….Liz must think those of us who can’t boil eggs properly are MORONS, so she’s doing this an April Fool’s Joke, all like, HEY LOSERS IT’S SO EASY TO BOIL AN EGG.”

    Dude, it is not easy to boil an egg properly. I never freaking do it right.
