Best food hack ever

Back when I discovered the "stick-a-pin-in-it" method for making easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs, 
I thought I was on top of the world. With my latest discovery, I'm orbiting around it a few times
every time I peel an egg. How did I not know this trick before?

1. Crack your hard-boiled egg on all sides, then peel off the shell 
at the bottom of the wide end of the egg.
2. Stick a teaspoon between the egg and the skin that lines the shell.
3. Work the teaspoon around the curve of the egg.


Fast, easy, and no stray bits of shell sneaking into your egg salad.

  1. Ah, I remember egg salad. I'm going to have to get another flock. After I build the chicken prison. Too many predators...

  5. And your eggs are fresh, can be tricky. That membrane really is the key though.
