Until meeting Brian, I didn't think there was a 'right way' to make hard boiled eggs.. however his culinary school would disagree!
In a saucepan, place 4 eggs and fill it with water.
Turn to high heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer.
After 5 minutes, turn off heat and leave the eggs in the pan until it cools down.
Once eggs have cooled to a handling temperature, place the entire pot under cool running water and then drain.
Do this a couple times to ensure the eggs are not too hot. (Alternatively let the eggs cool for 15 minutes.)
Remove the shell.
All done and ready to eat!
Looking for a quick and portable snack?
I love to bring hard-boiled eggs to work with some pita, leftover rice or in a salad. In the winter I will bring soup.
After removing the shell I like to add sea salt and fresh ground pepper, paprika and maybe a drizzle of some hot sauce and lime.
By adding oil and an acid like citrus or unpasteurized apple cider vinegar you can mash up hard boiled eggs into a tasty mayo-less egg salad. Chop up a few pickles and bob's your uncle! A tasty and healthy trans-fat free protein packed portable snack.
