Expert Tips for Making This Recipe

  • Older eggs:  Try using older eggs they are better than fresh eggs. They work better and therefore don’t stick as much.
  • Short cut tip: Buy pre cooked eggs from the supermarket or grocery store.
  • Remember:  Don’t forget running the eggs under cold water or placing them in an ice bath after cooking. Without a doubt, it helps the egg not adhere to the shell.
  • Alternate Method: Cut in half through the middle, not long ways and cut a little off the bottom of the egg halves for a more cup like egg to place on your egg tray.
