Steps For Peeling a Hard Boiled Egg

  • Slam, Smash, Hit one of the end of the egg on a hard surface. The smashed egg end should be a little flat after this. It takes practice.

  • Do the same on the other end.

  • Roll the middle part of the egg on a flat surface. While rolling the egg you should feel the egg shell cracking and maybe even coming off.

  • Find the most open spot where you can see the egg under the shell or create one with your thumb
  • You have to make sure your thumb gets under the clear or white membrane to start peeling

  • Now continue peeling with your thumb under the clear membrane and the shell should just come off in one piece if you are lucky. If it does come off in one piece you should yell, “Yes!!!”. Then try to do it again 🙂

  • Finally, use cold water to wash off the remaining pieces of egg shell

  • Tadaa! A Pefectly Peeled Egg!
