(Re)cooking hardboiled eggs?

Last night, I made some hardboiled eggs. When they were done, I put them in the refridgerator without peeling the shells off. This morning, I had one of the eggs for breakfast and discovered that I had not cooked the eggs long enough because the yolk wasn't completly cooked. My question is, can I take the remaining hardboiled eggs from last night and cook them a little bit longer until they are done?

sure, why not? You'd do the same with meat, right?

Here's what this site says, "You can reboil eggs up to three times with no noticeable harm. That discovery came about during a major potato salad project. I was using very large eggs, follwing my own instructions and forgot I usually used medium."

Someone recommended cooking hardboiled eggs this way and they come out perfect everytime..

Cover eggs with water and bring water to a boil with lid on. When it starts to boil, move off heat and time for 20 minutes. Drain water and replace with cold water. Let them sit for 15 minutes. The are done and extremely easy to peel.

Thanks Di, I'm going to try that. I love hard boiled eggs and so does my family, and sometimes they come out right and sometimes I can't even peel them (they cling to the egg)! I'm going to try your way next time!

I think the shell clinging to the egg is more about the age of the egg than the way that it is cooked. I cook mine the same all the time (Put eggs in pot, cover with water, bring to a boil. Turn off stove and let eggs set in water at least 20 minutes although I have been known to forget about the eggs and they set in the water lots longer than 20 minutes and they have been fine).

Some people say that fresh eggs peel easier and some say the older egg peels easier so it depends on who you ask. I can't figure. I've used new eggs and I have used older eggs and I just never know how they are going to peel.

I've heard both sides too. A trick I use is about 30 mins before I'm going to eat the eggs I crack them and roll them lightly on the counter to loosen up the shell then drop them in a cold water bath. It seems to make them easier to peel. However, every once in a while I still get hold of a stubborn one. Plus my daughter thinks it fun to hold the egg up as high as she can and then drop them in the sink or on the counter.

Oh, this is so weird. I undercooked HB eggs for the first time ever today (forgot to put the lid on the pot before I let them sit for the 10 minutes) and was wondering the very same thing.

Must be something in the air!

I bought a microwave egg cooker at Wal Mart for $5. It looks like a big plastic egg. It holds 4 eggs and you fill the bottom with water and place the eggs on the metal insert. It cooks the eggs perfectly in my micro in 9min 30 sec. The best part is every single time the eggs peel perfectly!!! Hot or chilled. Love it! I might go buy a 2nd one just to save for future use!!! I have become addicted to HB eggs!

[COLOR=Navy]Just be sure to use water in the pot! I forgot to do this one time and all of a sudden I heard popping sounds from the pot! I also do the method where you bring the water to a boil, then turn off the flame (I always remember the water now!) and then let the eggs sit covered for 20 minutes. I also notice I never get that greenish ring around the yolk anymore. Once I dump out the hot water I put ice and water in the pot and chill the eggs that way.

i was watching paula deen one day on the food network cuz she is my vicarious godess and that channel is like porn to me now, but she said add some salt to the water during boiling and the shell peels off so much easier. not sure why but when i did i could tell the difference from when i didnt.

also, i'm glad to hear that i'm not the only one that boils ahead of time and just pulls from the fridge(i'm probably just the last one to the party) but how long are they good for once they've been cooked and refridgerated. days? weeks?
