Well, I admit here and now, that sometimes (about half the time), I can't even boil an egg. I have the worst time with eggs that don't want to peel. The shell sticks and rips away chunks of egg white (my favorite part!).
And I know there's a trick to doing it right. But I NEVER CAN REMEMBER!
So I just got this email the other day from eMeals.com (I still subscribe). It sent me a link to a blog post titled How to Make Perfect Hard-boiled Eggs.
Put the eggs in the pan and cover with water. THEN heat to a boiling. Turn off burner, cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
I have usually boiled the water first, then added the eggs. That's been my problem.
So, I vow, from this day forward, I'll cook hard-boiled eggs correctly, without sacrificing precious hunks of egg white! :)
By the way, I know I blogged about eMeals.com a while back. But I recently changed from the Clean Eating plan to the Slow Cooker plan. I've gotten some fantastic recipes! I'll have to let you know how it goes once I try some.
So...do you have any personal tips for boiling eggs?
