    Some people don’t mind a little shell in their deviled eggs. Mostly Notre Dame fans, I think.

    You have to boil them first, THS. đŸ˜‰

    (All good suggestions, if ONLY I…GAVE a SH*T WHAT EITHER OF YOU SAY.)

    Eggs that are too fresh before they’re boiled are hell to peel.

    I’ve had people tell me ‘rinse them in cold water immediately after cooking!’ but that’s not it – the egg has to be a little bit old for it to be easier to peel.

    But I hear ‘ya. I never make deviled eggs because it’s too much of a PITA to try to get perfect halves. I do sometimes make egg salad, but with that, it doesn’t matter that I mangle the whites trying to peel them.

    A good egg can’t even make a yoke around here?

    “Free to comment” ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    I feel certain that, should some nefarious character press a muzzle against your favorite medulla and demanded a perfectly peeled egg, he’d get one.

    Here’s an interesting method…

    Have you tried boiling the eggs without the shells?


  11. Kate P says:

    If you haven’t tried it yet: after I crack them on the side of the sink, I peel them under running cold water.

    Otherwise, I don’t know what it is, either!

  12. Crack the tar out of them all the way around and end to end. Then roll them in your hand back and forth until the shell lets go.

    And then it’s still a crap shoot. But I do think there’s something to the “use older eggs” advice.
