Hard boiled eggs are an easy Low Carb snack to keep on hand, but I know first hand how much of a pain they can be to peel from their shell. I have tried everything from placing the eggs in an immediate ice bath to letting my eggs get older. Well I woke up one morning in the mood for a warm hard-boiled eggs. I didn’t care that my eggs were fresh I figured I would just have to lose a little egg white in the process. So I simply boiled them in salty water for 20 minutes while I took a shower and got ready for work. Then I just pour cold tap water over the eggs and continued to pour out the boiling water at the same time until the water was cold enough that I could reach in and grab an egg without burning my hand on the water or the hot egg. Tapped the egg on all sides and the shell came off the completely clean. Since then this has been my technique whether I want to eat them hot or cold.

  8. Transport the eggs in the pot to a working area. Make sure to leave them submerged in the cold water until cracked open.
  9. Quickly crack the shell of the egg and roll it in your hands. Remove the shell easily.
