Eggs! Who doesn’t love them? They provide a wonderful, healthy source of protein, and are incredibly versatile.

When I’m batch cooking on Sundays, the one thing I always do is hard-boil a mess of eggs to have on hand through the week. Spending just that small amount of time cooking ahead always pays dividends throughout the week, whether I eat an egg plain, for an on-the-go shot of protein for breakfast, or slice a few up and add them to my favorite salad.

The only tricky part: Getting those shells off cleanly and easily! In this video, I’ll show you my surprise trick for peeling them—no muss, no fuss.
