Convenient Protein: Hard-Boiled Eggs

Easy hard boiled egg

Waking up at 5am each day means that convenience  is of utmost importance in the mornings. Although you may not wake up that early, I’m willing to bet your mornings can be rushed and hectic too.

Last night I took 15 minutes to hard boil a dozen eggs to have on hand for quick breakfasts and convenient snacks. I highly recommend it for a healthy, natural protein option at your finger tips.

But there’s a trick to perfect hard-boiled eggs….ready for it? Don’t boil them. Truthfully. The secret to perfectly cooked eggs is to bring the water to a boil and then turn it down immediately. Here’s a step by step guide….

1. Place eggs in the bottom of a sauce pan and cover with 1-2 inches of cool water. (This will keep the eggs from cracking).

2. Bring water to boil.

3. When water begins to boil, immediately turn the burner off and let the eggs simmer in the heat for 1 minute.

4. Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let the eggs sit for 10-12 minutes.

5. With a slotted spoon, remove each egg and place in a bowl of ice cold water until they cool.

There you have it! Easy, fresh, and healthy.
