Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs w/o the Green Circle

Ever wonder how to make the perfect hard boiled egg without the green circle around the center?  Look no further:

Place eggs in a pot and cover with cold water, (enough to cover the eggs by about an inch).  Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat, cover and let sit 13 minutes.

Peel eggs under cold water and viola, perfect hard boiled eggs w/o the green circle.

1) Add 1/2 tsp baking soda and eggs will peel easily w/o breaking the eggs.

2) Flip your eggs over the night before you boil them and the yolk will be centered when you boil it.

3) Older eggs peel easier.


  1. Geesh! That freakin' simple? I read these other blogs and it's like doing trig or something to calculate how long to keep them in the water. I'm going to go try this tonight.

  2. Thanks for checking it out Beth. No trig required. Good luck.

  3. Be sure to spread the word and repost.

    1. Making these now for some egg salad!! xo
