Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

For quick and easy clean up when peeling hard boiled egg, lay a piece of cling wrap on the kitchen bench before you start to peel the eggs. Then when you have peeled the eggs, just throw the peel and wrap in the bin.

Cling wrap doesn't compost well. So, I'll have to thumbs down.

I agree with gogalyboo. Paper towel or just a sheet of junk mail paper is compostable and works just as well.

I peel mine right over the trash can.

When I peel my hard-boiled eggs, I throw the shells into an old coffee tin for future use in my garden and around my hosta plants (after they've been crushed).

I do mine over the garbage can or onto a plate or anything that can just be rinsed off. I wouldn't waste the plastic wrap.
