Easy To Peel Hard Boiled Eggs In Your RV Aren’t Impossible

Some campers wonder if you’re able to make hard boiled eggs in your RV. The answer, according to nine-year full-time RVing veterans, TheRVgeeks, is a resounding, “yes!”.

Hard boiled eggs make a great road trip snack, they’re healthy and won’t leave a greasy or sticky residue on your hands. You can also make a batch and bring them with you if you’re camping off-grid and don’t want to use a lot of water for cooking.

Decorating hard boiled eggs for Easter?

If you’ve got a hankering for decorating eggs this year for Easter, you can do that in your RV too!

For Easter, add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to the water to help eggs color more evenly. Also, as a few of people have been reporting that their particular brand of eggs tend to crack when dropped into boiling water right out of the fridge, try leaving them on the counter for an hour or two to warm slightly before putting them in the water. This will help avoid cracking.

  1. I love your site. The only thing I can’t stand are the senseless annoying adds that I can not figure out how to block. I’m tire of seeing them. Is there any way that you know of to get rid of them?
    Thanks, Bruce

  2. You don’t need to use ice. Just pour out the hot water, and add cold water, dumping out the water several times as you run it over the eggs. Crack the shells while they are sitting in the cool water. I agree that you have to rapidly cool the eggs when they are done, but no need for ice. If I have ice in my rv, I wouldn’t want to use it up for boiled eggs.

  3. Nice video–thank you! I use almost the same technique as you with one exception. I bring the eggs to a full, rolling boil and then turn the heat off and leave them covered to finish cooking without the use of additional heat. I then drain and cover with ice water before breaking the shells and peeling. I rarely have an egg that won’t peel cleanly with this method. Additionally, it conserves the use of propane in my small RV. (I use the same cooking method for pasta, potatoes, steamed veggies and the like and the finished product does not seem to take any longer to cook. Big difference in fuel consumption, however, which is always a concern when I’m out boondocking.
