A life changing experiment
Yesterday at work I sat down in my office as always. I eat my egg whites and oatmeal as I check labs and write patient notes. Same old thing. I’m sitting there with my co-worker Billy (hi Billy!) and he tells me about an amazing egg trick that will peel the egg in two seconds and it works every time.
I’m sorry there is no way…
As you all know I HATE peeling my eggs for prep. Okay hate is an understatement. I’ve cried over many pots of 40 eggs staring back at me to peel once I was done a full meal prep.
I’ve googled how to make it easier. I’ve looked on Pinterest. I’ve tried old wives tales. NOTHING! The best method I’ve found lately was to boil them and let them rest in that water for a while, let it cool down, and rinse cold water over them. Still is a hit and miss sometimes with getting a perfect egg.
After discussing, Billy and I headed to the hospital cafeteria, picked up 2 hard boiled eggs and went back to try the trick. Let me say I was super skeptical because like I said, I’ve tried every which way. I especially thought this wouldn’t happen because the hospital eggs are TERRIBLE for peeling. I’ve bought them a few times when I accidentally left my egg whites at home, and 15 minutes later I had half of an egg.
So excuse me for thinking this would fail.
Spoiler alert… it didn’t and I get REALLY excited in the video. I wanted to capture the true emotion 😉
- grasp egg in hand with a good grip
- Pointy side of egg down
- Squeeze the egg as you hit it on the counter. “Squeeze and tap” as I say in the video… it’s the new bend and snap from Legally Blonde 😉 just call me the medicine Elle Woods.
- Peel away in seconds
Best thing to happen to me all week!
Have a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
Your excitement is contagious! 🙂 Thabks for sharing Billy’s trick! Now I can’t wait to try it!
