A great source of protein. A simple snack. The center of a lovely Sunday brunch. There are so many options!! I personally like all styles of eggs but my favorite has to be the hard boiled. Two packed with my lunch every day ensures I am getting a little hunger satiating, muscle repairing protein in a convenient little package.
I don't mean to brag (yes I do) but my hard boiled eggs come out PERFECT every single time! No waiting for water to boil. No messy peeling where half the egg gets tossed with the shell. Just 15-20 minutes during my meal prep each week and my lunches are packed! What is my secret?
It's true! It takes only 10 minutes in the InstantPot and a few minutes of an ice bath and my hard boiled eggs practically peel themselves.

Making PERFECT Hard Boiled Eggs
Peeling these are oddly satisfying!
Now comes the fun part...peeling!
I used to hate peeling hard boiled eggs. I never knew whether they would peel effortlessly or if it would be a battle to detach the egg from the shell, sacrificing much of it to the trash. So sad!
Once your eggs have bathed in ice and cooled, go ahead and start peeling. It is oddly satisfying as the whole peel just comes off in one big piece, leaving a perfectly hard boiled egg ready for meal prep!
I hope you enjoyed this mini-tutorial on hard boiled eggs. Let me know if you tried and had success or if you have a different hack for hard boiling.
