How-To: Boil the Perfect Egg Mariel Lewis April 3, 2015 Breakfast, Easter, For the Fit, Gluten Free, How To Guides, Nut Free, On a Budget, Paleo, Poultry, Soy Free, Vegetarian In light of the awesome holiday we have upon us – Easter – I decided to make a fun “How-To” post on one of its food staples: the hard boiled egg. People will make hard boiled eggs during this holiday mainly to decorate and color them, but a lot of people will also make these to then create deviled eggs they can share and enjoy with their families! I think this post will be very beneficial to you, because even after the holidays are over, you can still make hard boiled eggs at home for breakfast or as a healthy snack! This post will teach you How To Boil the Perfect Egg. If you follow my steps to the “T”, you will get awesome and consistent results every single time. I am constantly boiling eggs. I usually boil six at a time, since I eat them a lot. I have one hard-boiled egg every morning with my breakfast; it is my morning protein choice for sure. Hard boiled eggs are easy to make, simple, consistent, oil free, and delicious. Especially when you add your favorite type of salt on top. I tend to sprinkle ground pink Himalayan salt, and oh how satisfying it is! I also use hard boiled eggs in my salads and smoothies. In fact, I have a great smoothie recipe in my Paleo Smoothies cookbook that uses hard boiled eggs as one of its main ingredients! The smoothie is delicious; you get all-natural protein in and you cannot even taste it, because of the fruit combination the smoothie calls for. I highly recommend following that smoothie recipe if you’re not a huge fan of the egg taste, but still want to get all of its nutritional benefits! Be sure to check my cookbook out on Amazon.com or look for it at Barnes and Noble. I have 150 smoothie recipes in there that you will just love! Have fun boiling eggs and spending quality time with your loved ones this weekend. Enjoy your traditions and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ! Get the full recipe by clicking here! Buy good quality eggs. Aren't they pretty? Add cold water. Water must cover them by 1". Place pot under high heat and bring to a boil. Once water boils, turn heat off and cover pot with lid. Let eggs sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed, drain water. Rinse eggs with cold water. Keep on rinsing (about 2 minutes total.) You can also choose to add iced water and let eggs sit for about 2 minutes. Pat dry eggs and place them in a pretty bowl. Then, refrigerate for about 2 hours (this step will make peeling easier!) Whenever you're ready to eat... Grab it. Tap both ends of the egg against a hard surface to release pressure (makes peeling easier!) And peel away. Perfect. Egg.
