Seems like everyone is eating hard boiled eggs lately!  Or maybe it’s just all the people I follow on Instagram.  They are so many methods out there, but many of them call for adding salt (or even baking soda) to the water, or taking your eggs out to bring them to room temp.  Instant Pot are super popular right now when making eggs.  Not everyone has an Instant Pot, though.

My method is pure and simple.  Just water, eggs, ice and a little time.  I shared this method over on my sister account My Name Is Snickerdoodle‘s Instagram’s Stories and everyone went nuts over it.  So many people commenting back they had used this method over and over and it worked EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Everyone seemed to comment on the peeling issue they had in the past and I 100% agree.  Peeling an egg is probably the worst part.  The yolk on the inside might be perfect, but the outside looks like a rat chewed it.  No one wants that.

I want to hear how you eat your hard boiled eggs!  Are you putting them on salads, slices of toast, serving them in little bento boxes?  My husband an I tend to just eat them with a little salt and pepper.  Well, I like them with just salt and my husband will only sprinkle them with pepper.  You could use some leftover Honey Garlic Chicken and serve that along with a few slices of boiled eggs in a fresh Cobb Salad.

I really like to use this method when I make Deviled Eggs and my most favorite recipe for Classic Potato Salad.
