Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

This is more of a tip than a recipe. I love eating hard boiled eggs as a high protein breakfast or snack and enjoy adding them to salads etc. but have never had any luck with peeling them! They always tear and end up being a mess, this is a particularly annoying problem when trying to make deviled eggs. I have no idea where I found this method but it works every time ... like magic!Put desired number of eggs into a pot of water, use enough water to cover the eggs, add a bit of salt to the water, do not cover.
  1. When the water begins to boil, shut heat off, cover the pot and set a time for 17 minutes.
  2. When timer rings, empty water from pot and refill with very cold water, throw in a handful of ice - the colder the better.
  3. Set timer for 17 minutes.
  4. When timer rings, empty all but an inch of water from the put, put the cover on the pot and shake the pot vigorously for a minute.
  5. Shells will either have fallen off the egg or will be very easy to slide off, no torn eggs, just perfect hard boiled eggs every single time!
