You’re in a hurry to get the kids out the door to school. 

And you have an early appointment or a deadline to make at work.

But your little ones need something tasty and nutritious to eat. 

You should eat, too, but who has time to feed yourself?

Take a deep breath to calm your stress levels. Because we’ve got an egg-cellent idea. 

This egg recipe makes it easy to feed your kids in the morning. It also snatches away all your excuses to deprive yourself of much-needed nutrients.

It’s perfect for breakfasts on the run or something healthy to put in your kid’s lunch box. Or maybe you want a high-protein snack to balance your blood sugar and take away those cravings for sweets.

If you’re pregnant, it’s a great way to give your baby’s brain extra choline, a nutrient your little one needs for good memory. 

When I learned this egg-making hack, I never went back. I doubt you will either!

My absolute favorite part of this recipe? The eggs peel effortlessly – no more stuck-on shell!

Helpful hints: Use the freshest, pasture-raised eggs possible. And watch your timer. If you forget, there are no refunds. ☺ The shell may stick. 


Perfect Steamed, Not Boiled Eggs!


  • Any number of eggs
  • Pot of boiling water
  • Steaming basket



  1. Add water to just reach the bottom of the steam basket. 
  2. Bring to a rolling boil – not just tiny bubbles. It must be making steam. 
  3. Add eggs to the basket in a single layer.
  4. This is the important part – Set your timer!
  5. Steam for 6 minutes for very soft boiled eggs, 7 minutes for somewhat soft boiled, or 10 minutes for hard boiled. 
  6. When the timer goes off, run eggs under cold water, or plop them in an ice bath if you’re less lazy than I am. Even if you skip this step, the steam helps separate the shell from the egg, so the eggs will generally peel perfectly. They may just keep cooking a bit longer.


Voila! Fast, easy, nutritious, and delicious.
