It’s no secret that eggs pack a powerful nutrition punch. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein. In addition, eggs are an amazing source of iron, vitamins, and carotenoids. Carotenoids are a class of phytonutrients which can help prevent everything from cardiovascular disease to certain cancers.
Not only are eggs a great source of nutrition, but their high protein content keeps you feeling fuller longer. Have you ever noticed if you have eggs for breakfast you’re less likely to crave a mid-morning snack? Ok, maybe you don’t have time to make an omelet everyday, so hard-boiled eggs are the perfect way to make a healthy source of protein more portable.
But many people claim hard-boiling an egg is too difficult or not worth the fuss.
We’ll show you how to hard -boil eggs with the push-pin trick! This will completely changed how you hard boil your eggs and they come out perfectly every time.

You will need:
- As many eggs as you’d like to hard-boil. (I usually make a dozen at a time; that way I can snack on them all week.)
- 1 push-pin
- Medium saucepan
- Cold water
- Bring a saucepan of water to a boil.
- Poke each of your eggs with a push pin, making a tiny hole.
- Add eggs to boiling water by carefully dropping them in. Boil for approximately 10 minutes.
- Turn off water and let eggs sit in the saucepan for approximately 5-10 minutes. Take the eggs out of the water and let them dry off. I use tongs and let them sit on a dish towel.
- Place eggs in fridge after they have cooled. Store your hard-boiled eggs in the fridge safely for up to a week.
And that’s it! Grab and go when you want. Crack and peel and eat!
