How to Reheat a Hard Boiled Egg
Hard boiled eggs are a delicious and nutritious snack any time of day! If you make a large batch of hard boiled eggs, you may be wondering how to reheat them later. The best method for reheating hard boiled eggs is to pour boiling water over them and allow them to sit, covered, for 10 minutes. You can then enjoy them plain or make delicious deviled eggs or scrumptious egg salad.
Using Boiling Water
Put your hard boiled eggs in a large, heatproof bowl.You’ll be pouring boiling water over the eggs, so it’s imperative that your bowl can withstand the heat without cracking. The bowl should be big enough that you can completely cover the eggs in water.
- This method is best for hard boiled eggs that have been left in their shells, rather than peeled.
Boil water.Use the microwave or the stovetop to boil water. You only need enough to cover the eggs in the bowl. Use your judgment based on how many eggs you are reheating in addition to the size of the bowl to determine how much water to boil.
Pour the boiling water over the eggs and cover the bowl.Carefully pour the boiling water over the eggs and into the bowl. Make sure you completely cover the eggs in boiling water so that they heat evenly. Cover the bowl with a plate or pot lid to prevent the heat and steam from escaping.
Let the eggs sit for 10 minutes.After covering the bowl, allow the eggs to heat up for 10 minutes in the boiling water. Then, carefully remove the cover.
Remove the eggs from the bowl, then peel them.Carefully remove the eggs from the bowl as the water will be hot. You may want to use a slotted spoon to do this. Then, peel the shell off and serve your hard boiled egg.
Trying Other Methods
Steam the hard boiled eggs.Fill the bottom of a steamer basket with 1 in (2.5 cm) of water and heat the water on high until boiling. Reduce the heat to medium and carefully place your eggs in the steamer. Cover the basket and allow the steam to reheat your eggs for 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off the burner, carefully remove your eggs, then peel and enjoy them.
- The time may vary based on how cold your eggs were to start with and how well they were cooked the first time.
- Experiment until you find the right amount of time for the degree of doneness and the temperature you prefer your eggs.
Run the egg under hot water.Run hot water through your faucet and hold the egg underneath the running water. If your water gets pretty hot, put on clean rubber gloves while holding the egg so your hand doesn’t get burned. Simply hold the egg under the hot, running water until it has reached the desired temperature.
Cover the egg with water and microwave it.Put a hard boiled egg (with the shell on) in a microwave-safe dish and cover it with water. Heat it for only 1 minute at a time to prevent it from becoming too hot or exploding in your microwave. Continue heating in 1-minute increments until it has reached the desired temperature.
- Alternatively, you can peel the egg and cut it in half, then place it on a microwave-safe dish and heat it in short bursts until it is warmed. Use short increments, such as 10 seconds at a time, to prevent it from exploding in your microwave.
Using Reheated Eggs
Sprinkle them with seasoning.Peel your hard boiled egg and cut it in half. Then, sprinkle salt, celery salt, pepper, or your favorite seasoning blend on top of the egg. Enjoy!
Make deviled eggs.Cut the eggs in half and scoop the yolks into a bowl. Mash the yolks and add cup (59 mL) mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon (4.9 mL) white vinegar, 1 teaspoon (4.9 mL) yellow mustard, ⅛ teaspoon (0.7 g) salt, and ⅛ teaspoon (0.7 g) pepper.
- Put the mixture in a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off the bag. Then, pipe the mixture into the egg whites.
- Place the eggs on a serving platter, sprinkle them with smoked Spanish paprika, and serve.
Make egg salad.Place six peeled and chopped hard boiled eggs in a large bowl. Add cup (59 mL) mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons (9.8 mL) fresh lemon juice, 1 tablespoon (15 g) minced onion, ¼ teaspoon (1.4 g) salt, ¼ teaspoon (1.4 g) pepper, and ½ cup (170 g) finely chopped celery.
