Eggs are one of the best ways to get protein with any meal. Hard-boiled eggs in particular are easy to grab to eat with fruit or a muffin for breakfast or cut into a salad for lunch. If they are overcooked the outside of the yolk will turn slightly greenish, which isn’t very appetizing. So I thought I’d share directions for how I boil eggs that turn out perfect every time!
lots of water
1 tsp vinegar
Place eggs in a medium-sized pot and fill with water until eggs are just covered. Add vinegar. Heat on high until water just starts to boil. As soon as you see bubbles, reduce heat to simmer and set a timer for 11 minutes. When the timer beeps, place eggs into a strainer and run under cold water for a 30 seconds. Ét voila – picture-perfect eggs.
Note: I find hard-boiled eggs easiest to peel when they’re room temperature.
