We like to eat hard-boiled eggs in our house. However, we’ve gone through a number of different instructions on how to make them best. Our issue has been that they are often not easy to peel. Our current method is below, courtesy of Mama Joyce.
- Put eggs in pot.
- Add water until eggs are covered.
- Bring to full roiling boil on stove.
- Turn off heat, keep cover on pot.
- Let sit 30 minutes.
- Remove eggs from water, put in refrigerator.
We enjoy hard-boiled eggs because they’re filling, cheap, and can be eaten plain, in a salad, or a number of other ways. We typically buy organic or local farm eggs for $4.99 a dozen, which is 41.5 cents per egg. Two eggs with a big slice of homemade bread and some cheese or carrots is a great lunch you can easily take to work, the beach, or the park.
Have a better method to cook eggs? I’d love to hear it.
