This worked for me two out of three times, but I am still trying to perfect my technique. Make sure you blow on the narrow end of the egg; maybe that was my problem. Let me know if it works for you. View a 35 second video:


1. Cover the eggs with water and boil on low for about 12 minutes
2. Cool the eggs by placing them in cold water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ice. The baking soda raises the pH level and reduces adherence. If you choose not to use baking soda, be sure to move the eggs into cold water with plenty of ice immediately after boiling
3. Crack the top of the egg and remove a small piece
4. Crack the bottom (wide end) of the egg and remove a small piece
5. Hold the egg in your hand and blow vigorously into the narrow end of the egg, while at the same time pushing with your tongue, which will expel it out the wide end.

Hey! This works; I just tried it!
