How to Easily Peel Boiled Eggs

Most people have a hard time peeling eggs, usually taking half the egg with the shell. I wanted to share an easy way to peel these delicious treats, saving the entire egg.


  • Boil your eggs for 15 minutes on a rolling boil.
  • When done, run cold water over the eggs until the heat is gone from the pot.
  • Drain the eggs and add oil (I use olive oil) to the pot and cover.
  • Once covered, shake the pot. This helps loosen the shells around the egg.
  • Remove the lid and commence to peeling, remembering to catch the membrane with the shell. Usually once you get a piece of the shell, the rest will easily follow with the swipe of a thumb or finger.

I hope this simple tip helps. Especially for those Sabbath days when much of Israel is eating boiled eggs!! I included a video tutorial below as well. Enjoy. Shalom!
