Hard boiled eggs

Post by jtw » Wed Dec 09, 2009 3:56 pm

Why did it take me until now to discover these?? So easy to make, so cheap, so healthy! A perfect snack, and they're easy to take anywhere.

Still working on my peeling technique, but I'm happy to have discovered the magic of hard boiled eggs. Just thought I'd share that with everyone...

I like to crack them like a coconut. Just crack it around the egg and start peeling, water helps too.

They are the gift that keeps on giving. It is perfect ammunition if you want to dutch oven your wife.

If you leave them till they're cold, you can peel off a little bit of shell on each side, then blow the egg out of the shell. Cool trick. It impresses the ladies :lol:

Normally though I just whack it down on the table so that the shell breaks/caves in. Roll it around so that it cracks all around the egg, then you can peel it in roughly 1.34 seconds. The shell will pretty much fall off.

I love them too, it's the ultimate bang for your buck but lazy meal. I have big pint cups and I stick 5-6 boiled eggs in them, mash them up with some butter and wolf them down. Easy as that.

Excellent idea jtw - had some last night for the first time in maybe 10 years - yum.

But if you're going to 'wolf them down' shouldn't you be swallowing them whole without chewing?

They're already mashed up in the cup. No need to chew :wink:
