Hard boiled eggs are a food item with many different uses. It’s an easy way to get protein in the morning, they are huge on Easter and they are a vital ingredient on a Cobb salad! They are also the main star of egg salad and of course, a party favorite, deviled eggs! One of the two biggest complaints I’ve seen about hard boiled eggs are that it’s hard to find the right length of time to cook them and getting the shell of is always troublesome.
Well with this method, all of that changes! I made a batch of eggs using these tips and the shell came off nice and smooth! The yolk inside was the perfect level of firmness and not overcooked at all. If you like making your eggs ahead of time, this way will be your new favorite!
