Remember … if you hard-boil an egg to eat at a later time, don't remove the shell until you're ready.

Otherwise, that egg will be … gulp


(Sadly, I only learned this after the loss of two good eggs.)

I think dragons are the quintessential element of fantasy in the same way outer space is for sci-fi.

That egg will be... what? Hatching a baby dragon? Imploding? Bursting into plasma? The suspense is killing!

Even if refrigerated?

Yeah, that doesn't make any sense. We almost always peel them after cooking them. Generally put them back in the fridge, then, in one of those glass Tupperware-like containers with a paper towel to keep any rogue condensation from being a problem, but that sort of feels overkill. Refrigeration on its own should be enough.

Is it possible they just weren't cooked right to begin with?

Can't say I've ever had any problems with peeling and storing my hard boiled eggs for later eating.

I suspect user error here.

Mike here's a hack for you: Peel the eggs at home before you cook them. Then cook the eggs at work for lunch. Easy-peasy.

Remove the shell, cut the egg in half, take the yolk out, combine it with some stuff and then put it back in, and the egg will be devil, and you can wait as long as you want, provided you don't leave it at room temperature for too long.

I do 9 at a time in my Instant Pot. Peel after five minute ice bath, store in little Ziplock bags. Eat them all week at work for a mid-morning snack. Still kickin'. cool
