How to Boil Eggs for rolling at Easter

As kids take to the hills of the UK to roll their decorated Easter eggs on Sunday 31st of March, we wanted to find the perfect way on how to boil eggs for rolling at Easter so they don’t turn to mush the second it hits the grass!

Getting the perfect boiled egg for decorating without either the shell cracking or water tuning the eggs into what can only be described as a soggy mush can be some what of a scramble.

Below are a few easy steps on how to boil eggs for Easter:

Step 1) Get a few eggs (depending on how many you will need) place in a pot/saucepan and cover in cold water to about just an inch above the eggs.

Step 2) Put on medium heat and when the egg’s start to boil leave for a further 2 minutes.

Step 3) Take the eggs off the heat and cover with the lid. Leave the eggs to sit for around 10-11 minutes.

Step 4) Once cooled, drain eggs and fill with ice cold water and leave for a further 2 minutes.

Step 5) Take eggs out of water & place in fridge until you need them.

Please don’t forget which eggs you have boiled as picking up the raw egg instead might lead to an awful amount of mess.

Now all that’s left for you to do is to decorate the eggs and get them rolling down the hill!
