Breakfast: Eggs

Eggs


Hard Boiled Eggs

What to do:
  1. Place eggs in single layer in saucepan.
  2. Cover with at least one inch of cold water over tops of shells.
  3. Cover pot with lid and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. As soon as the water comes to a full boil, remove from heat and let stand.
  5. Large hard-cooked eggs: let stand in hot water 15 to 17 minutes. (Can let sit for even 20 minutes)
  6. When cooked to desired level, drain off hot water.
  7. Immediately cover with cold water and add a few ice cubes.
  8. Let stand in cold water until completely cooled. Use as needed. Keep in refrigerator.
Tips:
  1. Never boil eggs. It makes them rubbery.
  2. Use older eggs. Fresh ones won’t peel properly.
  3. To keep eggs from cracking while cooking (before placing in water), pierce large end with a needle, which will also make them easier to peel.
