How to Boil the Perfect Egg & Delicious Deviled Egg Recipes
Thank for joining my RE Friday Round-Up! Just in time for Easter and last-minute entertaining, I’m sharing my simple technique to boiling the perfect egg. You know, the egg that actually peels perfectly?
And then, of course, I’m linking to some fantastic recipes that you may want to try for Easter that involve eggs (deviled eggs) or leftover eggs (egg salad varieties) – Yum :)
I’ve tried all sorts of methods to boiling an egg, but I always come back to this one. (Recipe below.)
Good luck with your eggs. I plan on making one of the recipes below plus one more appetizer for our Easter Celebration. Which, by the way, Aggie’s Kitchen has a round-up for last-minute appetizers for Easter Sunday on her blog today :)

The secret to a perfectly peelable egg? Start with boiling water!
1 dozen fresh eggs
Bring water to a boil. With a large spoon, slowly and carefully drop the eggs down into the water. Return water to boil.
Boil for 10 minutes exactly.
Immediately pour off the hot water, adding cold water to cover the eggs. Repeat this twice. (Or add ice cubes to really speed up the process.)
The egg will peel perfectly!
