At any time of day, a good boiled egg is a delicious and nutritious snack. But if you've done several at once, you may be wondering how to reheat them later. The best way to reheat hard-boiled eggs is to pour boiling water over them and let them soak for ten minutes. Then you can enjoy them neat, peppered or in a delicious egg salad.
Method 1 of 3: Using Boiling Water
Step 1. Place the hard-boiled eggs in a large heat-proof bowl
You will need to turn the water over the eggs, so it is very important that the bowl does not crack when exposed to high temperatures. It should also be big enough for the eggs to be completely submerged.
This method is ideal for hard-boiled eggs that have not yet been shelled
Step 2. Boil the water
Use the stove or microwave to boil the water. You just need enough water to cover the eggs in the bowl. Try to measure the amount of water based on the number of eggs you will reheat and the size of the container.
Step 3. Turn the boiling water over the eggs and cover the bowl
Carefully pour the boiling water into the bowl, completely covering the eggs so they heat up evenly. Cover the bowl with a plate or pan lid so that steam and heat do not escape.
Step 4. Soak the eggs for ten minutes
After covering the bowl, let the eggs heat up for ten minutes in boiling water. Then carefully remove the cover.
Step 5. Take the eggs out of the bowl and peel them
Remove the eggs from the bowl very carefully as the water will be very hot. Preferably use a slotted spoon. Then peel the hard-boiled eggs and serve them.
Method 2 of 3: Trying Other Methods
Step 1. Reheat the eggs in steam
Fill the bottom of a steaming basket with 2.5 cm of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Put the heat on medium temperature and place the eggs carefully in the basket. Cover it and wait three to five minutes for the steam to heat up the eggs. Turn off the heat, take the eggs out of the basket carefully, peel them and enjoy.
- Cooking time can vary depending on the temperature of the eggs at the start of the process and how well cooked they were.
- Experiment until you find the right time for the desired point and temperature.
Step 2. Place eggs under hot running water
Turn on the hot water in the sink and hold the eggs under running water. If the water gets too hot, wear rubber gloves so you don't burn yourself. Just leave the eggs under water until they reach the desired temperature.
Step 3. Cover eggs with water and microwave
Place a hard-boiled egg in its shell in a baking dish and cover it with water. Heat it at one-minute intervals so it doesn't get too hot or explode in the microwave. Do this until you reach the desired temperature.
You can also peel the egg, break it in half, put it in a baking dish, and heat it up in short intervals until it's warm. Microwave it for a maximum of ten seconds at a time so it doesn't explode
