For the easiest-to-peel eggs, learn how to steam eggs. We'll call them steamed hard boiled eggs since we know everyone will keep calling them hard boiled, there are too many years in our history of calling them that to change now.
Don't let your pan boil dry while the eggs are steaming. If you run out of water, add more boiling water to the pan.
Big-Batch Steamed Eggs
In a 4- to 5-quart pot place steamer basket over simmering water (basket should not touch the water). Add 12 eggs to the basket in a single layer (f you have to layer the eggs to fit, add a minute to your cook time). Cover; steam 17 minutes.
Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water. When cool enough to handle, gently crack each egg on the counter, then peel, starting from the wider end.
Cover and chill up to 5 days.
