Easy Hard Boiled Egg Recipe ~ Perfect Hardboiled Eggs Every Time

Making hard boiled eggs is easy, and takes only a few minutes.   Be cautious of eating too many egg yolks (the yellow inner part) because they’re high in cholesterol. Whether or not cholesterol is good for you or bad for you, too much is not good. My doctor told me no more than 3 egg yolks per week. Consult with your own doctor to find out what’s best for you.

Easy/Hard boiled? Sounds like an oxymoron. LOL! But there’s nothing redundant about eggs!  Hard boiled eggs are naturally rich in iron and high in protein. They make a great after-school snack or use in salads, or eat solo for breakfast. You can hard boil a dozen eggs and color them for Easter eggs!  Hide them in your house or lawn and have a fun Easter egg hunt on the cheap.  You can also hard boil eggs, remove the yolk, mix in a few spices and mayo then replace to make deviled eggs. And of course, they make the best Scary Eye Deviled Egg Halloween Treats!
