Hard Boiled Egg Magic

Updated on January 2, 2015

Hard Boiled Eggs Are Magic

I love hard boiled eggs! I love them plain. I love them stuffed with egg goodness mashed and mixed with mayonnaise and some seasoning. I love the white and the yolk and the nutritional value and just how yummy they are. I can eat hard boiled eggs for breakfast or dinner or just a snack through the day.

Eggs are magic because they come in just the right size and portion. You don't have to heat up a prepared hard boiled egg, it's just ready when you are. You don't have to share one because each one is it's own serving. They are loaded with protein, contain fat and very little carbs so they are a wonderful way to keep you feeling full and satisfied.

You can serve them to your family. You can make them beautiful and scrumptious at your next party. You can pile them in a bowl, chop them into a salad, heap them high and stuff them on a decorated platter or pop them in your mouth any time of day.

Cooking Hard Boiled Eggs

As much as I love to eat hard boiled eggs, I'm not so crazy about cooking them. I have undercooked them, and yes I have over cooked them. I have tried a million different suggestions all easy to find by just googling "cooking hard boiled eggs". You can boil them for 10 minutes then dump in ice water. You can cover them while boiling or keep uncovered. I have tried the method of just bringing the water to a boil, then covering the pot, then letting the eggs stand in the warm pot, then dumping them...

I've gotten cracked shells, green rings and runny yolks. Yes, I have added a pinch of salt to the water. Definitely dumped them immediately in an ice bath. Then again sometimes after I peel them they are all sort of different sizes, shapes, hunks of egg white peeled off.

Sometimes I get great hard boiled eggs. Sometimes not so much. We need some magic for our eggs.

Magic Egg Genie For Hard Boiled Eggs

So one day I'm walking through my local CVS store and I see it. The Magic Egg Genie Electric Cooker. And I'm thinking, you know I think I saw something about this on TV. Nah, no way it can cook great hard boiled eggs. I kept going. But since just a couple of hours before I had another one of those batches of hard boiled eggs, most of them made it ok but the others....meh. So I couldn't help myself. Could there be egg cooking magic in this Genie I wondered. I had to buy it and take it home and try it.

I know that boiling water should not be an issue. And hard boiled eggs are so worth the effort and time involved in cooking them the old fashioned way. But...what if I am writing an wonderful thought provoking Squidoo lens and I get so involved I forget to stand there and wait for the water to just boil to add the eggs! Oh no. Now the egg water coordination is going to be all off. I should have just stood there and waited....

Now I don't have to worry about that anymore. I have found the egg genie magic. Grant me one wish genie. To have hard boiled eggs I don't have to guess, try to fuss over and hope for the best. Oh, and I don't want to have to stand there and watch you cook. And because life is so busy can you add a buzzer sound that goes off when the eggs are done so I can come inside and unplug the cord. And they have to taste good. And they have to be easy to peel.

Done. I'm telling you people, Magic Egg Genie really does work. It cooks up to 7 eggs at a time. All you do is pierce the narrow side of the egg with the little piercer thingy on the cooker (very easy no prob) place it that side up in the cooker. Add the water measured to the line of how many eggs your cooking on the little cup included. Put the included cover on top. Plug it in and 10 minutes later it buzzes. Now all you have to do is unplug it and let the cooker cool a few minutes. My few minutes has been anywhere from like a minute to over an hour and still the eggs have been fine.

Usually once I plug the Egg Genie in I fill a container (plastic with a lid nothing fancy) with some water, pop it in the freezer while the eggs are cooking and then I have ice cold water when I'm ready to take my eggs out. So simple!

Once they have rested a little, lift the cover of your egg cooker, use the easy tray handle to lift the eggs out and pop them into the cold water container you took out of your freezer and..... Voila, you have hard boiled eggs.

 

Electric Egg Cookers

Egg genie is the only electric egg cooker I have ever used but there are amazingly so many of them on the market. Some of them have really great reviews too and you can probably count on them for not only perfect hard boiled and soft boiled eggs but poached eggs also. I don't know anything about poached eggs except that people love them too!

Check out some of these. They are all fairly priced I think and not an expensive appliance at all. Some are non-stick, some are more decorative but I find mine really easy to clean and store. Some are also available with Amazon Prime Shipping and I love Amazon Prime!

Slicing Hard Boiled Eggs

Slicing hard boiled eggs and adding it to salads, sandwiches or garnishes to your main meals is really fun and delicious too. The easiest and neatest way to do this is buy an egg slicer. There's a ton of styles to choose from and they are really inexpensive. Slicing one way gives you nice rounded slices and if you turn the egg around and do it again you get a nice chopped egg effect.

Eggs Around The World
Eggs Around The World

Eggs Are Life

Ok, maybe eggs aren't exactly life, but the symbolism of eggs is related to life, birth, fertility, the mystery of life and creation and of course of yumminess. Ok I made up yumminess. But people have been eating eggs for centuries, forever I bet. Ancient Romans and Egyptians and Chinese Dynasties and even the Norse history shows evidence of eggs being eaten and revered. Archaeological evidence proves human consumption of eggs in the B.C. era. Seriously, eggs definitely have longevity going on.

Eggs are eaten and used around the world, they are international. We use eggs in baking, eggs in cooking and sometimes separate our egg whites from our yolks but we love the magic of our food. Eating eggs doesn't hurt anyone or anything either. If the eggs were meant to be baby chickens they become baby chickens and if no baby chicken, then we get to eat it. They don't mess up the environment or hurt innocent little animals or screw with global warming. They aren't that expensive to buy but the farmers get to make money. Eggs are a win win from my standpoint!

I think eggs are all they are cracked up to be. Sorry couldn't resist.

Hard Boiled Cooked and Peeled Eggs Ready To Eat

A Dozen Eggs All Good
A Dozen Eggs All Good

OK I know there's people who just gasped. No way they are saying. This is just wrong. But wait. Before you turn you nose up on these hard boiled eggs in bags and packages let me tell you - I am living proof they are great. Seriously. They taste yummy. No one I have ever served them to have ever noticed a difference. Ever.

I mean wait a second. Surely there is nothing in the world that tastes better than a home baked warm chocolate chip cookie. Yet I bet you manage to eat more than a few Entenmann's Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chips Ahoy fly off the shelves. What's better than a cake from scratch baked with love, and yet pre-packaged easy to bake and prepare cake mixes and frosting are popular and frankly, very good too.

If you lead a busy life working, taking time with your children, going to school to further your job or education, jogging, working out, blogging or just don't feel like dealing with boiling water, plugging in electric egg cookers, and then peeling, oh my, peeling the eggs then these are really worth a try. I love them.

You may call it lazy. I call it yummy. And efficient and a better way to spend my time. And an easy way to have a wonderful, nutritional snack at your fingertips. Usually if I'm making a whole platter full of eggs for family and friends I'll use my Magic Electric Genie. But for everyday keep in the fridge fresh, I try to always have these ready to go. They are not real expensive. The have a pretty reasonable refrigerator shelf life too.

Peeling Eggs On YouTube

Everyone wants to know more about peeling hard boiled eggs. Rocket Scientists can send a man to outer space, Techno geeks invent incredible computers, tablets and cell phones, Architects build bridges and skyscrapers that last longer than we could ever imagine and yet, no one has come up with the ultimate perfect way to peel a hard boiled egg!

But we keep trying, everyday people, chefs and even manufacturers of egg popping, peeling products are still working on this simple, yet so complicated everyday activity.

Hard Boiled Eggs

Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs
Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

It has to be done. If you hard cook eggs, you've got to peel them in order to eat them. There are more online help me peel hard boiled eggs stories than there are recipes for eggs, well almost!

Some people excel at this job. A couple of perfectly placed tap, tap, taps on the kitchen counter and a little peeling and they have perfectly shaped eggs ready to eat or use in their favorite egg salad sandwich. Mostly, people have a really hard time peeling their hard boiled eggs. No it's not rocket science. And it's not the world's biggest challenge. But when you love to eat these eggs, this job can drive you crazy!

Here's how I do it.

First of all I use my magic Egg Genie. Even if you don't this will probably still work for you. Putting them in a cold water bath for at least a few minutes will really help. Then.

I crack the egg on the kitchen counter on the wider side of the egg (the opposite side you pierced if you used an electric egg cooker). Not exactly at the very top but just off to the right. A little. And then the top. That's where all the empty space in the hard boiled egg seems to be left so you aren't cracking the egg itself or membrane to start off. Once you peel that area away the membrane and shell just peel off together. Since I have been doing it this way my eggs are looking way better and I'm not throwing away much egg white that often comes off with the shell. You can do it under running water but you don't have to, although you will want to wash the eggs when done peeling to get the little pieces of shell off.

Good luck. This works for me but I now people who have wanted to resort to a chainsaw to get egg shells off!

Nutrition and Eggs

I know everyone worries about nutrition and eggs. Not just the calories and fat kind of worries but are they bad for your cholesterol, should you eat the whites, the yolks, the whole egg and how many eggs a day, a week, a month can you eat kind of questions come up all the time.

I don't have the hard boiled answers for these questions but I am definitely an egg lover so here are some of the links to egg nutrition in an eggshell.....

Quick and Easiest Deviled Eggs Ever
Quick and Easiest Deviled Eggs Ever

Even Easier Deviled Eggs

These deviled eggs take 2 seconds almost literally. Sometimes you want the pleasure of the hard boiled egg in your fridge, but you also want something a little more than a dry yellow yolk. You crave the mayo goodness with the egg deliciousness and there just isn't time to cut the egg, pop the yolk, add the mayo, scoop back into the shell.

So I invented what my daughter calls Poor Man's Deviled Eggs. They are. But they aren't, kind of. Hang in there, I'll explain.

Cook Time

Prep Time: 1 Seconds

Total Time: 2 Seconds

Serves: 1 (Me)

Ingredients

  • 1 Hard Boiled Egg
  • Mayonnaise of your Choice
  • A Knife (unless you want to use the back of the spoon)
  • A Spoon

Instructions

  1. 1. Take the hard boiled egg out of the refrigerator.
  2. 2. Cut the egg in half the long way.
  3. 3. Leave the yolk in. Don't touch the egg white either.
  4. 4. Scoop some mayo on the spoon and top each side with the amount of your choice ( or squirt it out of a squeeze bottle if that's what you already use).
  5. Even though I am always watching my calories and weight I don't really worry about it so much or measure, really how much mayo do you think you can fit on top of half an egg! But feel free to if you are following a diet. I add some flax seeds to my morning egg before adding the mayo and that works perfectly.
  6. Better photo to follow, I promise!

      I love eggs too. When I need to lose a few pounds, eggs are the way to go for me. The high protein content keeps me feeling full longer. However, unlike you, I like my eggs soft boiled. In response to your issue with cracked eggs and green rings around the yolks, old eggs will developed a ring aournd the egg yolk when cooked. I also noticed that eggs that have lines on them, they make me think of stretchmarks, usually are the once that crack where the lines are. I place my eggs in a spoon and gently lower them into the pot being careful as to not drop the egg of the spoon but let it gently roll of the spoon.

      As a former pro bodybuilder, a dozen eggs a day was always the rule. Deviled eggs are the best.

      Good lens.

      Fun and unique lens on hard boiled eggs! I eat a lot of egg whites for the protein, and I HAVE TO share the eggs with my cat, Choo Choo, who is spoiled rotten. (get it? egg....rotten....never mind) My kitten, Squeaky, is the official fried egg plate licker - he gets my plates squeaky clean. Choo Choo likes her eggs any way she can get them, and she will even eat an eggshell if I drop one on the floor while peeling a boiled eggâ¦.strange cat. I love the convenience of boiled eggs. I used to boil several eggs every Sunday along with my other weekly meal prep chores so I would have something quick to eat during the week. Boiled eggs are great in salads, and if I'm in too big of a hurry to make egg salad or tuna salad, I will slice a few eggs and make a quick sandwich out of them. I think I could eat my weight in deviled eggs in one sitting! I enjoyed your lens, nice work!

      I like to add a little mustard and vinegar to deviled eggs.

      Most of the time I can remove the shells okay, but an egg cooker sounds good and definitely need one of those egg trays.

      These are all good ideas. Love the Egg Genie, Didn't even know about buying them from a store already cooked and peeled, and that video was exceptional. Very nice job.

      I love hard-boiled eggs too, but have never figured out why sometimes they turn out great and sometimes not-so-great, and sometimes very hard to peel. You have good information here!

      I love boil hard boiled eggs,And I love all your egg ideas. It took me years for m e to get it right,I found that as soon as I take my eggs off the stove I start running them under cold water tap them on the ends and peal them. It works for me. Thanks for your lens, It is great.

      I keep peeled, hard boiled eggs in the fridge for my hubby to eat with his salad for lunch.So, I cook them about every 4 or 5 days...and usually there is at least one egg that I have trouble peeling! Thanks for your egg peeling suggestions. And, I think the Egg Genie sounds like a great idea for cooking eggs, I might try one! Great lens.

      I was expecting a simple little list of things to do with hard boiled eggs, but you've gone above and beyond. What detailed reviews and information! Well done! Oh, and my trick to perfect eggs is to steam them in their shells rather than boil them. Even the freshest eggs will peel easily this way.

      One of my favorite foods. I've had success and rave reviews by adding a little curry powered to my deviled eggs. Some people add mustard but that's not for me. Thanks for the tips.

      I love hard boiled eggs! Unfortunately, fresh hard-boiled eggs don't peel well, so I have to let them sit a week or two before boiling them. Fun article; I really enjoyed it!

      I don't find it a problem cooking hard boiled eggs, soft boiled is more of an art form, getting the white hard while leaving the yolk soft so that you can dip fingers of toast "soldiers" in it (English tradition). These egg cookers are reasonably priced though, and since they still cook the eggs the traditional way with boiling water, it's not a bad idea at all. I agree boiled eggs are very flexible, there are so many ways you can eat them, everything from egg salad sandwiches to using them in salads. Nicely done, blessed.
