Insider Info

Microwave ovens vary. Cook time may need to be adjusted.

Very fresh eggs can be difficult to peel.  To ensure easily peeled eggs, buy and refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance of cooking.  This brief "breather" allows the eggs time to take in air, which helps separate the membranes from the shell.

Hard-cooked eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling.  Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.

To peel a hard-cooked egg:  Gently tap egg on countertop until shell is finely crackled all over.  Roll eggbetween hands to loosen shell.  Starting peeling at large end, holding egg under cold running water to help ease the shell off.

Hard-cooked egg storage time:  In the shell, hard-cooked eggs can be refrigerated safely up to oneweek.  Refrigerate in their original carton to prevent odor absorption.  Once peeled, eggs should be eaten that day.
