On Day 5 of our 31 Days of Halloween we awoke to find: Hard Boiled Egg Ghosts. The kids loved these & they rarely eat hard boiled eggs but as soon as they saw them they wanted them! Another win for mom.
Boil non-fresh eggs your favorite way, peel, then cut off a very small portion of the bottom of the egg so they sit flat on the plate. Take a heavier duty straw (I used a reusable hard plastic one) to punch the holes out of the eggs. You have to twist it a bit sometimes.
My fav way to boil eggs with easily removeable shells is to START with boiling water & lower room temp eggs into the water. Simmer for 11 minutes & then put them in cold water to stop cooking. (I’ve been testing out ways for the past couple of years, this works best)
To peel, put them in Tupperware with a top & a little bit of water. Shake vigorously. They’re practically peeled for you. Don’t shake too hard though! (You prob saw this online. It really works!)
A toothpick can help get the egg out of the straw.
